Hove A Pictorial History, Paperback / softback Book

Hove A Pictorial History Paperback / softback


Hove was a fishing village with few people as recently as 1801.

Thirty-four years later Horsfield, in his history of the county, described it as `a mean and insignificant assemblage of huts'.

On a shoreline subject to erosion and plundering French raiders, it lacked a market for its few families.

From this unpromising beginning the town developed with broad avenues and tidy streets which possess a certain amount of style.

Due to Victorian entrepreneurs and the search for fashionable places, the village swallowed up the surrounding land to become the Borough of Hove.
