“We travel further east again to Brighton’s only village which is Rottingdean. As you go through the village there is a charming pond with ducks and various waterfowl on. If you look straight across the pond you can see the house of the famous writer Rudyard Kipling.”

  • Rottingdean is indeed a pretty and historic village. Does anybody know any information about the woman who was accused of being a witch and was drowned in the old pond many years ago?

  • I think I’ve read everything there is to read about the history of Rottingdean and I’ve never seen anything about anyone being drowned in the pond!

  • Came to Rottingdean today to show the lovely duck pond to my guest from USA. What a shock – no ducks just weeds.
