It's impossible to think of Peacehaven without its close association with the South Downs chalk cliffs. And of all the histories of towns in Sussex – surely Peacehaven's origins are the most unusual. Although there is evidence of dwellers at the location 3,500 years ago, the modern town known today was founded by businessman Charles Neville in 1916. He bought the land and then offered plots for people to build homes. It was run as a competition, with some controversy, and Ethel Radford, a Leicestershire woman, gave Peacehaven its actual name [previously it was called New Anzac-on-Sea] in 1917. Working class families were drawn to the sea air there, and the town was marketed to recovering Great War veterans. Gradually, the temporary homes [old army huts and railway carriages] were developed into proper living accommodation around an American style grid road system pattern. Today, the town has its own council, churches, shops, and leisure facilities. It also contains part of a Site of Special Scientific Interest.
Peacehaven champions independent retailers too via support for the Co-operative Meridian Shopping Centre, which contains a butcher, barber, sweet shop and ironmonger, among other outlets. A mini-market is also held twice per week, at the community building, which sells fare such as vegetables, crafts and collectors' items. There are a few supermarkets in Peacehaven too and a farm shop at Hobden Farm, which offers fresh-from-the-farm products. Otherwise, Peacehaven offers facilities expected of a small town with a GP practice, cafes, restaurants, and takeaways, alongside some great grab-a-bargain charity shops. Peacehaven & District Chamber of Commerce, formed in 2007, is at the forefront of engaging local and wider interest in the trade offering by local businesses in the town.
