The Pullover in Chapel St Leonards

PulloverAt the time when goods were brought in by sea, wagons pulled by horses went out onto the beach to meet the cargo ships that were on the shore. When the cargo was transferred to the wagons they would return fully laden but could not get over the sea defence bank. That was when a second horse was used to pull over the heavily ladened wagon. Hence the name "Pullover."
