This page gives information on Ore Village and Ore Valley areas including the Hastings wards of Ore, Baird and Tressel

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.

Churches in the village are the Parish Church, Christ Church, Seventh-day Adventist Church, Clifton Road Methodist church and a Salvation Army unit.

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.
