BRIGHTON

TQ3104SW MEETING HOUSE LANE 577-1/64/515 (South East side) 20/08/71 Nos.49, 50 AND 50A (Formerly Listed as: MEETING HOUSE LANE Nos.41-53 (Consecutive))

GV II

Houses, now shops. Late C18 or early C19; shop fronts of early to mid C19 design. Stucco on north elevation scored to imitate ashlaring; the same treatment applied to the other elevation has been partly obscured by the application of rough cast. It is impossible to see the roof due to the extreme narrowness of Meeting House Lane. EXTERIOR: 3 storeys over basement. One window to each and one window-range to west-facing return of No.50. All windows are flat arched. Ground floor of No.49 taken up by a shop front which resembles those on Nos 47 and 48 Meeting House Lane (qv) and dates to the mid C19. The first-floor window has 6 x 6 sashes of original design, the second-floor 3 x 6; the third-floor window cannot be clearly seen. On party wall is a flat-arched entrance to upper floors of No.50, with the postal address 50A. The entrance to the shop front on No.50 is on the corner, set on a chamfer and flanked by a pair of Tuscan pilasters; entablature continuous around the shop. This front is extraordinarily tall, almost double height; the glazing bars in the top section are original. There are mid C19 sashes to first-floor windows of 2 x 2 design; the second-floor windows have an original early C19 design of 6 x 6. All windows have deep reveals and projecting sills. Guttered eaves to both. The great height of the shop front to No.50 may indicate that it was built as a jeweller's shop. INTERIOR: not inspected. These buildings form a most important group with Nos 1-12, 22-32, 36-41, 43-48, and 51-53 Meeting House Lane (qv), which is the centre of the section of the Old Town known as the Lanes.
