The Council is reviewing its list of special features in the city that are considered to add to the sense of history of the place without being good enough to be officially ‘listed’. Some small features in Round Hill seem to add greatly to the sense of place, and could be worth getting on the list. Consider the following:
The flint and bits of brick walls on the cat creep – classic Brighton Bungaroosh building material. Bungarush is used in many Brighton houses, hidden behind plaster. It can make hanging a picture incredibly tricky. You either hit a flint and bend the nail, or start dislodging handfuls of loose lime mortar and pebbles. There is another length of bungaroosh wall where Crescent Road meets Princes Road.
This beautiful Purbeck limestone and thin brick crossover in Princes Road is one a declining number that was once very common. The use of the same limestone in the gutter is also pleasing.
