It was in the year 1923 that Hartley & Midgley Ltd of Preston Road, Brighton decided to open a garage on the lower road to Shoreham, and they chose this spot which was then considered to be out in the country. At this time one could stand on the lower road and see across the fields and market gardens to Green’s factory beyond Portland Road. In this view can be seen two lone houses, the present 155 and 157 New Church Road. On the right are the backs of the houses 2-8, Marine Avenue. Saxon Road did not then exist.
