The Bedford Arms was established in Queen’s Road, Hastings in 1865. It was both a hotel and public house. At 12pm on Saturday 5th October 1940 the building was directly hit by a high explosive bomb, one of 12 such bombs dropped by a lone German bomber. They struck Queens Road, Milward Road, Wellington Road, Cricket Ground, Stonefield Road and Wallinger’s Walk
The only photograph I could find of the Bedford Arms as it once looked is this one.
