Technically these days, Rottingdean is in the city limits of Brighton and Hove, but even so it is still very much a picturesque East Sussex village, lying on the coast. From the mid 17th century until the 19th, Rottingdean was a smugglers haunt, with locals running brandy, tobacco and a variety of other contraband goods into the village. Men could earn double their wages by unloading cargo for the smugglers, so it was in everyone’s interests to deceive the excise men who were posted in the village. Eventually, in the 19th century, taxes and import duties fell, and smuggling was no longer the lucrative business it had been. Today Rottingdean holds celebrations, remembering its past and these include ones commemorating its smuggling days.
