Ore, a former village, is still known locally as a village by local population, although it now a suburb of the urban area of the town and borough of Hastings in East Sussex, England. It is located 1.3 miles (2.1 km) 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". The Ore Stream still runs through a large central Woodland area known locally as Speckled Wood, Hastings at the top of the Valley. It is the largest suburb of Hastings.
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 Railway Station (one mile from Ore main street/Ore Village) lies on the Marshlink Line; with the former maintenance depot for the trains from London, and the coast (via the East Coastway Line and Hastings Line). Ore station lies northeast of Hastings station and south of Three Oaks (formerly Three Oaks and Guestling Halt).
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.
Ore Valley has the Ore Valley Campus of Sussex Coast College Hastings on Parker Road. Hastings Academy is in the nearby Red Lake district of Ore.
