Here is a view which no one alive will ever see, except in this photograph. It was taken about 50 yards up the drive leading to the cemetery from Lewes Road, looking south-west across the valley to the ridge of Ditchling Road. The houses on the skyline are four on the west side of Richmond Road, with lower down a house either in Roundhill Crescent or Upper Lewes Road. This view is now obliterated by the huge railway viaduct constructed in 1866 to make way for which Bennett’s building and two adjoining houses were demolished. Both of these photographs were copied from originals taken by the well-known Victorian photographer, Edward Fox.
