Some geocaching around the Tide Mills at Seaford Head

Tide Mills is a derelict village two kms south east of Newhaven. The village was abandoned in 1939.
The Tide Mills site had a Railway Station, Nurses Home, Hospital, RNAS Station and the Marconi Radio station (1904).
The Tide Mills site, unused since 1900, was condemned in 1936 with the last residents
forcibly removed in 1939

The tide mill was erected in 1761 by the Duke of Newcastle, and was later owned and operated by William Catt (1770–1853)
