That is a great story Carol, and one I did not know. In 1979 I lived in a flat in Upper North Street; the buildings in this area are really beautiful!

Many years ago I spoke to the Montpelier & Clifton Hill Society. I commented on the lovely statue in the niche and the then owner of the property above had a good laugh and said, "everyone thinks it is an old original from the 19th Century house...I bought it for a few pounds from Mike Deasey and put it in the niche, which correctly should be empty!". Mike Deasey ran an 'antique' yard near Kemp Town station and did copies of classical statuary amongst other artefacts. A lovely Brighton 'back-story'!
