Inscription:FROM THIS BEACH SITE DURING THE YEARS :-
CIRCA – 1906 – 1960

A.G.Moore & Sons operated a fleet of commercial fishing and pleasure boats. Fish caught
daily provided the residents of Bexhill with food including the allied forces billeted around
Bexhill duringthe two world wars. Pleasure boating was a popular pastime for the many
holiday makers who visited the town in the years of peace during the summer months.

Below this plaque is the original Frapping-Anchor Point
by which the Fleet was hauled up onto the parade,
in bad weather including the family’ favourite
“THE NANCY”
