The streets that border it

By Jackie Fuller, North Laine resident

The current North Laine Conservation Area in the city of Brighton & Hove is bounded by Trafalgar Street to the north, Frederick Place/Frederick Street to the west, Gloucester Place/St George's Place to the east, and Church Street to the south (but including Bond Street, Jew Street, King Street, Windsor Street and Portland Street).


This is the area covered by the North Laine Community Association.


However, the original (18th century) North Laine was much larger and extended as far north as Preston Circus. It was bordered by Church Street to the south, New England and Viaduct Roads to the north, St Nicholas, Buckingham and Clifton Streets to the west and Victoria Gardens and Ditchling Road to the east. The present London Road and Queen's Road cut through the original North Laine. There are articles about this in the History section of this website.
