‘North  Laine History’ for all you want to know about the historical development, people, places and historical buildings of North Laine. North Laine was Brighton’s industrial suburb for over 100 years and its charm and character today derive from its narrow Victorian residential streets, its historic buildings and the strong community living within it.
