Hastings & St Leonards up in the air!

Here we are! a new site to view containing many local pictures never seen before of Hastings & St Leonards from this angle, they are all modern but taken from 100 feet up in the air from an East Sussex Fire and Rescue turntable ladder back in 1999/2000.

The photo’s will not be in any order as such, but you can have a guess to where they are, some are very easy, whilst others are not quite so, but many of you will recognise some are without captions.

By Clicking on the picture of your choice you will have a caption displayed at the bottom.

Please take into consideration when viewing that these were taken some 100 feet in the air and sometimes very windy, whereby the ladders swayed about quite a lot. Also the photos were taken on wet film with a telephoto lens, and often had to reload the camera up in the sky.

Here are a few more added as of August 2nd 2016.

Your comments would be appreciated, they will not be shared and only visible to the Admin staff. 



My sincere thanks must go to ‘Green Watch’ (Watch Commander) Stn 8 Hastings for the use of the crew and TL during operational hours over a 2 year period, and to ‘East Sussex Fire & Rescue’ for their extreme permission. Thank you.
