PRESTON ROAD – Cumberland Road to Clermont Road

By the time this photograph was taken on 25 June 1978, the massive trees had all but obscured the individual houses from the roadway though some entrances are visible. The view is from the corner of Cumberland Road looking north. One wonders what will be the fate of these ten houses, two of which, 235/237, in 1961 were used to house the first students at Sussex University. Probably, when the time comes, a comprehensive redevelopment of the entire block would be the best course.
