Brief History

Evidence has been found in the west of the town of Bronze and Iron Age settlements. A Bronze Age “Barrow” or burial mound has been found on the cliff edge in the town. The town itself is fairly new as development was not started until 1916. The founder of the town, Mr Charles Neville, set up a company to build on land that he purchased from the local authority. The new residents chose to call the new town Anzac-on-Sea, but this was soon changed due to the ill-fated military operation during World War I. It became known by its current name.
