1788

By John Riddington

The map below shows the extent of Brighton in 1788, with St Nicholas Church in the top left corner. The area around the church is shown more clearly in the second map down. The footpath from Hove developed to become Western Road. The bottom map from 1790 shows the field system around Brighton.
