Steel engraving by Rock & Co, London, 10 June 1855
Similar to Images of Brighton 773. There are 5 other known engravings of Christ Church. The spire was modelled on Chichester Cathedral. The front of the church is a similar Gothic Revival design to that of St Peter’s. It was destroyed by fire in 1978 and finally demolished in 1982. Flats were built on the site. The design of the terraces either side of the church are similar to those in Belvedere Terrace, Brunswick Place and Powis Square, amongst other local roads.
