From the rear side cover: With photographs, anecdotes and reminiscences, the author draws on her many years' living and learning in Seaford to cover the period during which a small seaside community has grown into a thriving town of some 24,000 souls. The end of the Second World War found "Front Line Seaford" with gaps in its families and its streets, where enemy action had taken its toll, at home and on the battlefields. The sea, that great eternal foe, continued to demand vigilance to prevent damage to shoreline defences with consequent flooding of the old town area.

Gone forever were many of the boarding schools for which the place had once been famous; the former playing fields became available for housing development and, before long, newcomers were swelling the population. Nor did the town escape those symbols of the changing times - the coffee bar complete with juke box, the launderette, the self-service store, the take-away.

Seaford has become a modem commuter town, like many another, but still proudly celebrating its ancient history - with some startling discoveries and notable events along the way.
