Steel engraving by Newman, London, published by W Grant, 5 Castle Square, Brighton, c1852.
To the right of the church can be seen the rising hill of the Ditchling Road. On the left margin is the Gloucester Hotel, immediately beside that is the left turn of Gloucester Street, and the notice on the wall reads ‘To the Female Orphan Asylum’. J A Erredge in his History of Brighthelmstone tells us that ‘The design of the Asylum is to save innocent and unprotected female orphans from the too frequent misery attendant in idleness and poverty’.
