Over Street

A brief history

By Maureen Brand, North Laine resident

Over Street runs between Trafalgar Street and Gloucester Road.

In the 1800s

Built circa 1850, it is a street of four-storey terraced houses. The 1856 Folthorps directory described the housing as "small tenements". In 1868 trades listed were those of a painter, beer retailer, milliner, and the Brighton and County Loan Office.

As a matter of fact, quite a few of the houses in Over Street are three storey houses. They don't all have basements.
