This house, at the corner of Goldstone Lane, has been a familiar sight to thousands of supporters of Brighton and Hove Albion over many decades, but only the oldest of these will recall when it formed part of Goldstone farm. At the turn of the century there were seven farm cottages, six quite close to the Railway line and this larger one, which was inhabited by the farm foreman, a Mr Nye and later, a Mr Laker. When the farm was given up and the ground bought by the Albion, the house was taken into the ground perimeter. It was last lived in after the Second World War, and for a short time was used as Albion offices. The photographs were taken in June 1967. For many years after this the house stood empty and derelict, until it was finally demolished in January 1983.
