The Battle of Hastings to Bexhill Link Road

With the protesters currently being evicted (9.30am, Wednesday 16 January), and the national media now regularly covering the protests at Combe Haven, we think it is appropriate to list the many articles we have published over the last few months.

Our coverage started back in September 2012, reporting on the county council’s identification of the area as a “site of exceptional tranquillity”!
