Plough Inn, 49 Priory Road, Hastings

At West Hill in 1878 & at 1 Albion Place in 1871 and 1891 census and earlier. This is my local, although to be completely honest, I rarely use it. It's a friendly, well kept little boozer with a beer garden at the rear. Its Dutch appearance is said to derive from the fact that there used to be several windmills nearby. There were at least four windmills in the area once, but all have long gone and I am unable to say whether this really had any bearing on the pub's distinctive design. ***
