Newhaven used to be named Meeching until the 16th Century when a great storm diverted the course of the Sussex Ouse so forming a NewHaven.
Wealden oak, wine and spirits from the continent and slab ice from the Baltic were shipped through the port. The town flourished with shipbuilding yards and breweries. The railway reached Newhaven in the 1840s and the first ferry service was established soon after, providing the shortest land- sea route between London and Paris. Both the ferry service and the Dieppe Raid have forged strong links between Newhaven and Dieppe. Each year the Mayor of Dieppe and entourage are the guests of Newhaven for a commemorative service to the 1,000 Canadian and Allied servicemen who embarked from Newhaven and died on the beaches of Dieppe. Their memory is preserved by an impressive granite plinth in a garden of remembrance by the harbour.
