A part of this old terrace of houses dated from as long ago as 1826, but many of the houses were of a later construction. Facing the terrace across the narrow roadway was the high retaining wall, built about 1840 to protect the few cottages of Sussex Terrace, 40 feet below. Probably this had been the site of a chalk pit or similar excavation in the early 19 century.
