Winchelsea Beach

We walked out to the beach at Winchelsea, all shingle, to the Mary Stanford Lifeboat House, unused since its crew went out to save a Latvian boat in the English channel in the early hours of 15 November 1928, the boat capsized and all seventeen were lost.   The lifeboat house has not been used ever since:-
