Ore, a former village, is a suburb of the urban area of the town and borough of Hastings in East Sussex, England. It is located to the north-east of the town on the main road to Rye (the coastal A259 road). Its name may have originated from the Old English word for "stream-bank". It is the largest suburb of Hastings.
In the part of Ore known as St Helens stands a second Anglican church dedicated to St Helen. The church was built in 1868, and its predecessor, an ancient church dating from the reign of Edward III, now stands in ruins nearby. Hastings Cemetery is in the St Helens area of Ore.
Hastings Academy is in the nearby Red Lake district of Ore.
Ore Valley lies to the west of Ore Village, and is the site of Ore Railway Station and the former Broomgrove power station. It is also the site of a proposed major redevelopment and housing project. Ore Valley has the Ore Valley Campus of Sussex Coast College Hastings on Parker Road.
Ore Railway Station (one mile from Ore main street/Ore Village) lies on the Marshlink Line; with the maintenance depot for the trains from London, and the coast (via the East Coastway Line and Hastings Line). Ore station lies north of Hastings station and south of Three Oaks (formerly Three Oaks and Guestling Halt). For most of the day, Ore is the eastern end of an hourly stopping service from and to Brighton via Eastbourne and Hastings. East of Ore, the Marshlink Line is served by an hourly Brighton to Ashford international express service calling at Ore only during peak hours. For the rest of the day, passengers travelling from and to stations east of Ore must travel via Hastings.
Ore Valley has the Ore Valley college campus.
