Hailsham is a town with a long and varied history. Its location affords it easy access to several larger towns, as well as the south coast, which is probably why it became the market town for the thriving agricultural industry in the surrounding area many years ago. Indeed, by the mid-19th century it was the biggest cattle market in the county and was attracting drovers from as far away as Wales. During the early 1800s the rope making industry was established here by Thomas Burfield and the town once supplied the ropes used for public hangings in Great Britain and the Colonies. In this fascinating book Hailsham resident Eddy Powell looks at life in the town, both past and present. Each chapter presents intriguing details about Hailsham, the surrounding area and its people and includes many previously unpublished illustrations and photographs.
