EXTERIOR: 4 storeys over basement. 2-window range. C20 glazed brick to the ground floor; brick in header bond to the upper floors, painted on the first floor only; right return faced with stucco cement. The covering of the 2-span roof is obscured by the combination of a low parapet above and a tortuous street pattern below. 2 round-arched entrances to the ground floor, that in the centre with a C19 fanlight and that to the left is blocked; both now have glazed brick architraves. To either side of centre entrance a window. All the windows are flat arched. Storey band in glazed brick tile between ground and first floors. 2 segmental bays to first floor, each with tripartite windows and sashes of an original C19 design: 6 x 6 to centre and 4 x 4 to sides. Entablature and projecting cornice to each bay. The second- and third-floor windows have deep reveals, projecting sills and sashes of an original early C19 design: 8 x 8 to second floor and 4 x 8 to third. Coping to parapet. INTERIOR: not inspected. HISTORICAL NOTE: the Market Inn changed its name from The Golden Fleece in 1990. It was formerly known as The 3 Chimneys because the owner was reputed to be the Prince of Wales' chimneysweep. (Carder T: The Encyclopaedia of Brighton: Lewes: 1990-: 115M).
