Shornden Villas was a block of fifteen properties constructed prior to 1866, located in Bohemia Road between the junction with London Road and Upper Park Road, being addressed separately at least until 1905, number 15 Shornden Villas later becoming 1 Bohemia Road by 1907.
An issue as to in which direction drainage into the sewer network should flow was the subject of a letter to the Hastings & St Leonards Observer in September, 1869. It would appear that the properties remained un-connected to a main sewer network until well past 1876 - the council becoming aware that the sewers were discharging over their land causing a great nuisance by May of that year.
