East Street, Shoreham-by-Sea.
East Street, Shoreham-by-Sea was once a busy road – and a bus route. Not any more. It has been pedestrianised, which has arguably changed its character for the better (unlike some pedestrianisations).
It now has cafés and craft shops. Just out of shot to the right there is still a NatWest Bank, although the HSBC branch behind the camera has now closed.
“Ye Olde Wine Shoppe” was, until fairly recently, still an off-licence. However, now it is a knitting and needlecraft shop. Above, there is (and has been for many years) and employment agency.
On a nice day, you can see many people sitting outside enjoying a coffee or a meal. Not today, though. Not an entirely unpleasant day, but perhaps a bit too chilly to be enjoying the fresh air!
This shot of East Street, Shoreham-by-Sea (not to be confused with the other Shoreham in Kent) was taken low down with a wide-angle lens. This has given the dramatic foreground, complementing the sky, and drawing the eye down East Street to the main Brighton Road going across the end. Opposite here is the footbridge to Shoreham Beach, which may be the subject of another photograph one day.
