    7 Quirky Facts About Seaford

    1. Running River
      Seaford was once the point at which the River Ouse flowed into the sea. A large shingle bank made Seaford the perfect harbour, but as the course of the river changed the town was left without its most valuable asset, which had moved to what is now Newhaven.
    2. What The Dickens?
      In 1850 in an attempt to literally stem the tide, 11 tons of gunpowder was placed in Seaford Head to create a bay, stop the erosion and loss of the town’s important river. Without the river and quayside, Seaford would lose trade and prestige. 380,000 tons of chalk were blown up to make a barrier, an event which attracted huge crowds including Charles Dickens. Unfortunately the great expectations were not realised as the sea simply washed away the chalk and the river continued on its new course through Newhaven.
    3. Marines & Members
      In 1347 the port of Seaford was protected by 5 naval ships and 80 marines to prevent invasion from neighbours like France and Spain. In fact, the town was so important it had two members of parliament.
    4. Doomed
      Despite its value and importance, Seaford isn’t mentioned in the Doomsday Book. But neither were Liverpool, Bristol or London!?!
    5. Bookish
      Seaford is the setting for the Sunday Times best-seller This Is Your Life by John O’Farrell. Although the town isn’t mentioned by name, keen locals will spot the obvious landmarks and references.
    6. Grey Cliffs of Dover
      One of England’s most famous landmarks (it’s even a Windows screen saver), many people confuse the Seven Sisters with Dover. Robin Hood Prince of Thieves, Atonement, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Mr Holmes and many other movies have used Seaford’s pristine cliffs as a backdrop, rather than the Dover cliffs which are actually mostly grey.
    7. Oh What A Night!
      The creation of a harbour wall in Newhaven lead to nearly the complete erosion of Seaford’s beaches. To combat this, 1 million tons of materials were dredged from the English Channel and pumped onto Seaford’s beaches. The work was completed in October 1987 which coincided with the one of the worst storms in English history. The beaches were so battered that nearly all the newly deposited materials were washed away in a single night. Doh!
    8. Dancing On The Ceiling
      The storm of October ‘87 also brought further destruction and in some cases merriment. The morning after the storm the gym roof of the principle secondary school, Seaford Head, was found sitting in one of the school’s car parks. Before long it was joined by jubilant pupils, dancing on the roof in celebration of an unexpected day off school!
