West Ascent

From Historical Hastings Wiki
West Ascent


West Ascent is situated behind the Royal Victoria Hotel, between the hotel and St Leonards Gardens. It was built between 1831 and 1833[1]

Originally it was intended to continue the range of houses in West Ascent to the top of the hill, uniformly with the opposite range known as East Ascent, but the design was interfered with by the erection of St Leonards Church on its present site (on the seafront just to the west)[1].
