Maudlin Lands

From Historical Hastings Wiki

J. Manwaring Baines gives the total area covered by the Maudlin Lands as being some 57 acres, covering much of the area between White Rock and Warrior Square, extending inland as far as the Horntye Field (now Horntye Road)[1].

Contained within the Maudlin Lands were the ancient St Mary Magdalen Hospital and Bohemia Farm. The name Maudlin continues, albeit with a more modern spelling; that of Magdalen Road[1] Income from both the management and sale of the lands gave rise to the Magdalen and Lasher charity.
