The Windmill Pub on Upper North Street
“During genealogy research, I’ve discovered that my grandmother lived at 69 Upper North St.& my grandfather, prior to their marriage lived at No. 63 – this was in 1911. I believe that No. 69 is now a pub – The Windmill? Does anyone know if it was a pub in 1911 or is that a more recent thing? Many thanks for any help – really enjoy your site, as it brings back many memories of growing up in Brighton/Hove.”
“The Windmill public house dates from about 1828 and is probably named from Vine’s Mill.
The Clifton Gardens were laid out when Clifton Terrace was built in 1847. They were and still are for the exclusive use of residents of this street, but were once the site of the Clifton Windmill, which was built around 1810-1820s and was moved in 1837 to Windmill Street in the Albion Hill area.”
