Hollington is a suburb and local government ward in the northwest of Hastings, East Sussex. The area lies next to Baldslow, Ashdown, North and Conquest, and less than five miles southeast of Battle, East Sussex, the home of Battle Abbey, which commemorates the victory of William the Conqueror at the Battle of Hastings in 1066.

Hollington was the site of The Grove School, which has now been replaced by The St Leonards Academy.[1] It was also once the location of The Grove, the manor house for the lords of the manor of Hollington.[2][3] The Levett family built The Grove, and then the property was carried into the Eversfield family by a Levett heiress.[4][5][6] The eventual lord of the manor became Thomas Eversfield of Uckfield, bringing the Eversfield family from their early Sussex beginnings to the Hastings area, where they would go on to play a prominent role for centuries.[7][8]

The Hollington Stream runs from Silverhill, Hastings, through Hollington Wood towards the sea at Bulverhythe. [9]
