    Bexhill – 7 Quirky Facts

    1. Scandalous!
      Bexhill-on-Sea was the first UK seaside resort to offer ‘mixed bathing’, where ladies and gentlemen could bathe on the same beach. “It’s an outrage I tell you!!”
    2. Marathon Man
      Eddie Izzard (comedian, fund raiser, London Mayor candidate) lived in Bexhill and is still a regular visitor to his hometown. Another local was John Logie Baird, the inventor of television.
    3. Very Keane
      Platinum selling rock band Keane formed in Bexhill. Some of their biggest hits, like Sovereign Harbour Café, are inspired by their (misspent?) youths in the town.
    4. How much?!?
      According to the Doomsday Book, prior to the Norman conquest the area was valued at £20. However, the invaders laid waste to Bexhill living little of value in 1066. By 1086 the town was worth £18 (“Sorry, I’ve only got a tenner and two fives!”).
    5. Waterloo
      In 1804 the Kings German Legion (having been forced out of Germany by Napoleon) were stationed in Bexhill to protect that stretch of coast from French Invasion. In June 1815, troops from the Bexhill regiment played a major part at the Battle of Waterloo, which changed the course of European history and helped ABBA win the Eurovision Song Contest.
    6. Live Long and Prosper
      The 2011 UK census found that there were more centenarians living in Bexhill than any other part of the country.
    7. Speed Demons
      Bexhill is the birthplace of British motor racing. The first ever automobile race took place in 1902 organised in part by the Automobile Club of Great Britain (who went on to become the RAC). The race was won by Leon Serpollet’s Easter Egg Steam Car, running at a speed of 54 miles per hour!!
    8. Smugglers Bay?
      After the Napoleonic Wars, with France in turmoil and thousands of soldiers returning home to find no work, smuggling became rife. Bexhill became a focal point with customs officers (‘Preventitmen’) and soldiers stationed in the area. In January 1828 a battle took place between smugglers, desperately trying to save their loot and the authorities. Over 100 men were involved, some were killed in the fighting, most of the smugglers escaped but 10 were eventually caught and having been sentenced to death were eventually sent to Australia.
