    The site of the old Tide Mills village between Seaford and Newhaven, East Sussex. A tidal mill built in 1761, a WW1 sea plane station, a village lost in 1940 when the remaining inhabitants were evicted and the area used for WW2 defences and training.

    Used to camp there as a teenager amongst the remaining flint walls (more drinking-under-canvas than camping, really); didn't know about the RNAS station though.
