How the Eardley got its name

Antony Edmonds takes a look at the history of Worthing's Eardley Hotel, with men behaving badly with a fish '“ and young Bob Monkhouse and a lost cat

This postcard of the Eardley Hotel was published around 1970 by Photo Precision of St Ives, Huntingdon. At this period the hotel occupied the five eastern houses of the terrace, Nos 37, Marine Parade, and indeed No. 8, at far left, is not painted white as the Eardley is. The sign above the entrance on the right reads Tipple Bar.

Although the text of this extract is almost exactly as in Antony Edmonds’s ‘Lost Buildings of Worthing’, not all the pictures seen here appear in the book.
