From Historical Hastings
These public steps, connecting Caves Road at the corner with Sussex Road to West Hill Road were closed circa 2002 due to instability of the cliff face behind, however even as early as 1883, the steps were known to be dangerous, a correspondent to the Hastings & St. Leonards Observer writing in to complain about the state of the footway/steps in September of that year.
