WEST BLATCHINGTON TWITTEN
This formed part of an ancient footpath leading from the Chalybeate at Wick, over the railway and across the Old Shoreham Road, through farmland later Hove Park and ending at West Blatchington. For many years this stretch west of the Park was enclosed between high hedges but was fenced when the Greyhound Stadium was built in 1928.
When the Alliance Building Society bought this site for their new head Office, Hove Corporation had to give authority for the public right-of-way to be expunged.
This view is of the digging of the foundations of the new office in December of 1964.
The only remaining portions of this ancient path are between Hove Park Gardens and Goldstone Crescent, and diagonally across Hove Park.
