Redoubt Centenary Field sits in a prominent position on Eastbourne’s seafront surrounding two bowling greens and adjacent to the Redoubt Fortress. The fortress was constructed more than 200 years ago to defend England during the Napoleonic Wars and was still in use by the military during both World Wars.

The space contains trees planted in memory of local men who lost their lives during conflict as well as a tree in memory of Henry Allingham, one of the last surviving World War I veterans and also the world’s oldest man when he died on 18th July 2009 at the age of 113 years.
