About this website

The Digital Memory was created by Hastings Pier Charity’s Learning and Education team with Community Sites (based in Brighton) as part of Hastings Pier’s Heritage Lottery Funded restoration project and was launched in Spring 2016.

The content was gathered during 2014 and 2015 by Hastings Pier Charity’s team of volunteers. The site is run by a small team of staff and volunteers from the Learning and Education department at Hastings Pier Charity.

Much of the research, captions and contextual information on this site has been gathered thanks to the dedication of a small team of archive volunteers.

The content on this site has been primarily donated by members of the general public. Some content has been reproduced by kind permission of Hastings Museum and Art Gallery, Hastings Library, The Keep, Judges postcards, and Brighton Museum.
