Puget's cottage

by Alan Hobden 3 October 2013

According to the Argus this morning: “The uncovering of a secret historic cottage hidden away from a high street could scupper a multi-million pound redevelopment. New research by local historians has uncovered the past of newly-named Puget’s Cottage off North Street, Brighton, and the Timpson store in front of it which is one of city’s oldest remaining shops.

It dates from the 17th century but became dwarfed and lost from the sight of residents by the development of the Hampshire Bank building and then Hannington’s department store.

The cottage, shop and a twitten connecting the two have now been recognised as nationally important by English Heritage and listed.”

Do the team have any further information on this please?
