A remarkable classical church designed in the 1820s by Sir Charles Barry before he was really famous and known as  a gothicist. It was built to serve the Brunswick Square development a block to the west of the town, and by the seafront.  This was the seasonal home of the nobility and those of taste. 

Many of the memorials are to the good and great who went to Hove for their health and died there. It has just undergone a very extensive restoration having been occupied by squatters for many months.  


Map reference :

Standing just off the seafront, the church will be open to visitors on Sunday afternoons from June to September.
