BRIGHTON

TQ3104SW MEETING HOUSE LANE 577-1/64/512 (South side) 20/08/71 No.43 (Formerly Listed as: MEETING HOUSE LANE Nos.41-53 (Consecutive))

GV II

House, now shop. C18. Stucco to ground floor and weatherboarding to first, its short right return in brick. Roof of tile. 2 storey. The first floor is jettied and terminates in a facing gable. C20 shop front to the ground floor. Jetty supported by 2 joists at either end of the front; that to the right is bracketed. The only original feature visible from inside the shop is an elliptical-arched doorcase to a rear room. Tradition has it that this structure dates to the early C17; although this early date is suggested by its outline, general appearance and projection into Meeting House Lane, what remains is very probably only slightly earlier than the rest of the houses in this twitten. Iron shop sign to first floor. This building gives much character to the Meeting House Lane and forms a most important group with Nos 1-12, 22-32, 36-41, and 44-53 Meeting House Lane (qv), which is the centre of the Old Town known as The Lanes. (Carder T: The Encyclopaedia of Brighton: Lewes: 1990-: 115N).
