The Shipwreck & Coastal Heritage Centre in Hastings, East Sussex, tells the unique story of the maritime Hastings area - encouraging people to explore the 'maritime park' shore at low tide. At the Centre they will discover how to find the two major historic shipwrecks on the beach nearby that are protected by English Heritage; they will see how to walk through a prehistoric forest 4000 years old; how to collect rocks and fossils from the age of the dinosaurs 135 million years ago; and how to experience the rising sea level and changing coastline and massive sea defences; and where to wander through the quaint streets of the medieval Cinque Port of Hastings. There is also the story of several other important shipwrecks lying on the seabed of the English Channel.
