Open House  – Living History - 135 All Saints Street
Here’s another rare chance to see 135 All Saints Street, a16th century merchant’s house and one of the most complete Tudor houses in the Old Town. As previous visitors will know, it underwent a unique and extensive restoration programme from 2006-2011. The owner, Alastair Hendy, has taken it back to how it may have looked when first built, carrying out major structural repairs throughout, sympathetically restoring every surface and internal fixture - yet keeping the evolution of the house intact. This is an opportunity to experience first hand this magical time capsule lit by candle light, and to pick up a few tips on sensitive restoration and some quirky interior design solutions. Carnival Week 2013 saw hundreds visit over one weekend, and for those who came before, please do come back, for now you can read all about the house’s history, how it was before, and the extraordinary changes it has seen.  Come and see – you’ll be amazed.

Old Town Mortuary
The house has some secrets of its own, for up until the 1950s the rear wing was used as an undertaker’s workshop, cadavers being stored in the adjoining cellar room. Two elderly Hastings fisherman have recently recounted their memories about when as boys they would come to The Wilderness (as the area behind upper All Saints Street was known then) and peer through the back windows of the house to spot the bodies laid out, then run away. Entry: £3 per adult, £2 per child (under 18) Donation to OHPS.
