Peacehaven map
Selling the dream: London just over the skyline(!), so not far to the sea. The "Aerial landing ground" was a temporary airfield used during WW1. The "Waterworks" may only have been a small covered reservoir. The "Electric station" was a couple of generators in a two-storey building on Arundel Road just east of Dorothy Avenue. As for the "Light Railway" from Saltdean, this would have had interesting gradients or a very long tunnel to reach Falmer or Lewes.

The Estate Company's Office on the corner of Piddinghoe Avenue. Later this became the Rosemary Tea Rooms, then the Rosemary Nursery which had a garden shop attached to the left-hand side of this building.
Looking down Piddinghoe Avenue
Some of Peacehaven's first houses in Seaview Avenue — looking NW.

The black house in the background may be an ex-army hut.
No.35 Mayfield Avenue was one, although now well concealed. There was also another one nearby in Piddinghoe Avenue with colourful gardens, replaced by a row of houses in the 1960s.
