About the property

The building, currently ‘Stone Corner’ occupies the site of 42a & b High Street and No.1 Courthouse Street, an exceptional location in the Hastings Old Town. Until 1800, Hastings was confined to the Bourne Valley between the large unspoiled open areas of the East and West Hills. The High Street was one of the two original streets that were divided by the Bourne stream, the High Street and All Saints Street were the most popular areas with George Street being known as ‘the suburbs’. The Property: Historic substantial Commercial Premises, Dating back to 1511 The earliest deeds are believed to date back to 1511 and work carried out on the property in 2002 revealed some extraordinary features from the 15th century. For the past 50 years the Binns family has run ‘Stone Corner’ selling stone jewelry, minerals and crystals. Prior to this, the building was occupied by Howard Lucy who ran a violin making and repair shop. ‘Historic Hastings’ quotes the following passage; “One inn name that unfortunately is no longer with us today is the ‘Three Partridges’ which stood next to the Market House, now 42 High Street in 1656’. More research on these promises to be intriguing and rewarding. It is noticeable that the property has many features of different ages, most specifically the Courthouse Street front elevation roof timbers which date back to Tudor age. The kitchen window has the original glass from the 1600s, maintained by a local glass specialist. There is a panel of wallpaper from the 19th century which has been kept and submitted to the Courtauld Institute. Read more
