Two Dog’s

I didn’t go looking for this building, Iv’e past it more times than I can remember and not really taken any notice of it.  How could I go past and not snap it up!  It was an old stable sighted high up on a hill in Brighton.  Could be Regency but probably Victorian. Beuatiful cast moulded dog heads in moulded frame fixed to the stable doors.

The Stable doors, I think its only storage now.

End of stable building.  In contrast to this building, a new trendy development has been constructed opposite this image.

These are great mouldings fitted to the stable doors, let the mouldings do the talking.  Lovely local history…

On the Brighton theme

I’ve posted a couple of aerial shots of Regency Square Brighton, from a balcony on the 11th Floor Sussex Heights, looking West over to Hove.  Regency Square was constructed in 1818 – 1828 on what was called the Belle Vue Field.  Individual plots were bought from the developer Joshua Hanson.  Covenants were drawn for this development which required owners to repaint the facades every three years and contribute towards the up keep of the enclosure .  The Covenants ran for 71 years from 1818 and subsequently taken over after by the Corporation as part of the 1884 Brighton Improvement Act.  ( Zoom in and look around the buildings )

View of, the back of the East Side, of Regency Square.  The facades and frontages of these Grade ll listed buildings are fairly well manicured, the rear of these buildings, not so as you can see.  Added extensions and new builds cling to the rear running up to road behind.  The 1.56 acre gardens in the Square hide the underground car park that was built at a cost of £523.000 and was opened in the Easter of 1969.
