From Historical Hastings

The name Tackleway came into existence from its old English name 'le legil wey' which means either 'The tiled way' or 'way to the tile kilns'. This nomenclature first appeared on a deed dating to 1499. The road was formally adopted by Hastings Borough Council in 1853, following the sale by William Eldridge of part of Crown Lane[1], opening the road up for development[2]

The road gained some renown when the famed local composer and conductor Anthony Collins (1893-1963)[3] composed a piece titled for the street[4]
