The rural scene from Woodbine Cottage, about 1904. At the foot of the newly made Natal Road were the toll-keeper and policeman’s cottages, also seen on other pages. Until 1923 the Brighton – Preston boundary ran down by the fence on the right, across the Lewes Road and continued over the hill as can be seen in this photograph. The land in the left distance then formed part of Harrington Farm and later became the North Brighton allotments. The houses of Hollingdean Estate now cover it. Note the forerunner of Allen West’s premises and beyond, part of the old Cavalry Barracks.
