When Brunswick Town was being developed in the late 1820’s, a large market for all sorts of provisions was being built between Brunswick Square and Waterloo Street. Opened in August 1828, the entrance from Waterloo Street was through this archway, then bereft of all the dreadful additions of later years. The archway was still being used when the market closed and became Dupont’s Riding School. I do not know when the extensions were added, though the houses on either side were there from the start. Photographed on 21 October 1973, the archway was restored to its original appearance by Hove Council in 1986.
