Set on the wall of platform 1 of this Grade II listed railway station, may be seen a large mosaic made up of panels of broken coloured tiles. It was created by pupils of St Richard’s Catholic College, Bexhill, in about 2002. The mosaic shows a large sunburst at the top and the grey cement outline of a church with tower within the main body of the design. Smaller panels depict seaside features such as shells, birds, fishes, mermaids, fishing boats, ice creams and beach umbrellas. There are also local associations with the Clock Tower (Trail location #31), a windmill and Serpollet’s “Easter Egg” car (Trail location #6).
