Half Street Numbers

From Historical Hastings


Due to the density of buildings in the Old Town in particular, after a street was completed (post street numbering) any 'infill' numbers were either given a suffix (e.g. 'A' 'B' 'C' etc.) and more rarely a half number e.g. 1½, yet peculiarly more common in the Hastings Old Town than perhaps elsewhere in the country.

Known Examples

There are undoubtedly others, and some of the above may now have disappeared.
