Described in the “Kings England” as its Glen that peeps out on Hastings, a fine view of the sea from its seclusion in the hills; its Down looks out on the coast of France, with Hastings Castle like a toy below. This village provides amazing views and it was from the this great height some 540 feet that the first observations were made for the Ordnance Survey; There is a mix of property predominantly made up of post war 1960’s and 1970’s bungalows, interspersed with several more recently constructed homes and the one or two properties for those who relish a project. The rest of the village is made up from residential properties situated on the main road to Hastings from Pett Level and branching off along unmade lanes stretching to the cliff end. https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/features/fairlight-cliffs-east-sussex
