Another illustration of the devastation caused by the hurricane of October 1787. The photograph looks down Woodland Drive in the summer of 1965 and shows the magnificent range of trees in Hove Park overhanging the pavement. Fortunately some of these still remain but many were lost. At the left can be seen the flint wall running at right angles, which is clearly shown in the 1904 photograph of this road on another page, while the Waterworks entrance at the right seems unchanged. The Chartwell development further down the road was many years still in the future.
