Memorials and statues
Hastings and St Leonards hold a rich and interesting collection of nineteenth and twentieth century sculptures, memorials and maritime artefacts.
A number of these have suffered from exposure to weathering and, in particular, their proximity to the sea.
Wind from the south-east and windborne moisture containing sodium chloride (sea salt) appears to have produced significant decay to some of the monuments on the sea front.
In general there is little evidence of vandalism or graffiti, neglect and an unsuitable location have, in many instances, been responsible for damage and deterioration.
