  • Is this the building next to The Cricketers in Prince Albert Street?

  • What a sad sight of a dreadful occasion, when unscrupulous developers demolished (possibly illegally) the 16th century Black Lion Brewery. The brewery is open here and the part of the building to the north would also go, but this was rebuilt as a ‘replica’ in 1974 after Brighton Council enforced an order on the demolition to rebuild.

  • Yes, this building was next to The Cricketers. Why was it demolished?
