The beach at Eastbourne

Harbour Quay

Harbour Quay is an area that was once known as The Crumbles - a shingle beach between Eastbourne and Pevensey Bay.


During the early 1920's, two brutal murders took place on the Crumbles. In 1920, Irene Munro was murdered by Jack Alfred Field and William Thomas Gray. Then in 1924, a pregnant woman named Emily Kaye was murdered by Patrick Mahon. According to Coxe, both victims reputedly haunt the area.
