Miniature Trams

From Historical Hastings Wiki

A miniature tramway operated on Sea Road in the early 1950s. This ran from the Bathing Pool along the seaward side of Grosvenor Gardens between 1947 and 1950. There were a number of complaints regarding the noise generated by the attraction[1], and several petitions against it were presented to the council in 1951.[2] These finally led to its closure in November of that year.[3]
