About

During the First World War, Newhaven became one of the major supply ports to the Western Front. The number of soldiers at the Fort increased to over 4,000, the Boys’ School (now the Hillcrest Centre) was converted into a Military Hospital and a Seaplane Station was built on the beach between the East Pier and Tide Mills. The Poppy Trail is a series of eight site-specific interpretation panels which tell stories about how the war affected Newhaven and the people who lived and worked here.
