Clarence Square - then & now

c.1900
These houses date from the 1820s and refronted c.1850. The gardens have been in Council ownership since the 1884 Brighton Improvement Act. They lost their railings during WWII but these & the garden were nicely restored during the 1990s. Like many places in Brighton it has lost several mature trees. The Square is within the Regency Square CA and the houses are subject to an Article 4 direction requiring magnolia walls, white woodwork and black railings.
