Saltdean, (East Sussex)

Parish picture

Formerly open, uninhabited farmland belonging to the village of Rottingdean, Saltdean was developed following a sell off of the land for development in the 1920s. Some of this was promoted by Charles W. Neville, who also masterminded development at nearby Peacehaven. It has a mainly shingle beach, fronted by a promenade, the Undercliff Walk, which can be reached by steps from the clifftop. Saltdean is now a prosperous village suburb of the city of Brighton and Hove, though its eastern fringe is administratively part of the neighbouring Lewes District Council.

The buildings nearest the coastline are architecturally varied, and include some influenced by international trends of the inter-war years, e.g. Bauhaus and Cubism, and there are some which are Spanish-influenced. The most famous building is the Lido or swimming-pool, whose architect was R.W.H. Jones, and the former Ocean Hotel, based on the appearance of mid-20th century ocean liners, is also noteworthy.
