North Brighton London Road to Coldean Through Time

Availability: Out of stock

Author: Anthony Beeson

Brighton’s first suburb, London Road, was for its first century almost entirely domestic in character and the haunt of the genteel middle classes, whose gardens were praised by the Loudons. The suburb’s change to commercial and industrial use provides a fascinating picture of a once prosperous community in transition. The suburbs subsequently spread along the traditional northern routes out of the town, following the sale of Stanford land in the 1870s, and over countryside once belonging to the manors of Preston and Patcham.

This rare series of illustrations has been carefully selected from the author’s private collection, providing a wonderful historical record of the area. Arranged geographically, the images in this book allow the reader to explore the London and Dyke Roads, Lewes Road through Moulsecoomb to Coldean, and the Ditchling road to Hollingbury.
