St Agnes' Home, Pevensey Bay, Sussex

The St Agnes' Home was established by the Waifs and Strays Society in 1938 at Pebble Road, Pevensey Bay. It was used as a convalescent home for children with disabilities, replacing the St Agnes' Home in Croydon. The home was officially opened on June 30th, 1938.

The home was closed during the Second World War and the children evacuated to other branches.

The home closed in 1972, with the then residents being transferred to Harvey Goodwin House in Cambridge. In 1974, the home was re-opened briefly as a children's holiday home.

The property is now in private residential use.
