Arch Support

2 to 16 Wellington Road. 
Possibly the oldest surviving houses in Portslade-by-Sea.

The view from across the Basin reveals that the secret of their cliff-balancing trick is an elegant brick-arched colonnade.

It sometimes seems that the Victorian builders could solve any structural or architectural problem with a pile of bricks and a skilled brick-layer.

Another view from c.1910

  1. Just at the bottom of Boundary Road Portslade/Station Road Hove. Used to pass those houses on the way to school. The whole area was derelict at the time.
