Cream teas
If you are out and about this coming Saturday (25th), please do come and visit us at Fulking Village Hall where we will be serving coffee and cake, and cream teas from 11:00am until 4:00pm. There will be bric-a-brac to browse through and Book Nook will also be open where we have had an influx of new books (more books always welcome).

The Dyke: a 1949 retrospect

Devil's Dyke in its day
In its C19/C20 heyday (see above), the Dyke was a magnet for summer day visitors. They even overflowed into the tearooms that both Poynings and Fulking then had to offer. But, by 1949, the hotel was a ruin, the area desolate, and there were no tourists or day-trippers. In February of that year, an unidentified writer looked back at the history of the site in the Evening Argus. The article was then reprinted by St.Andrews Quarterly in July of the same year.
