In 1894 the Abattoir was opened, to the south of this old road and in the following year the Refuse Destructor started up. The large Chimney of the Destructor is said to date from 1869 but I have my doubts. In 1890 because of the steep gradient of the old road where this joined Ditchling Road, a new road, the present Upper Hollingdean Road was curved round the Depot to reach Ditchling Road by a gentle slope. View in the reverse direction, looking down to the arch. The buildings on the right have gone and are replaced by the new Meat Market, moved from the Russell Street area of central Brighton.
