The Widdicombe Way/Bevendean Crescent area, lying between South and East Moulsecoomb, is known as 'Higher Bevendean', and is not generally regarded as part of Moulsecoomb.

The Church of the Holy Nativity is no longer a working church but is instead a community centre providing a space for local meetings, regular classes including yoga and for local artists to exhibit during Open House seasons twice annually.

I am so glad I have read this. I have lived in Widdicombe Way since 1976 and it has always been called Higher Bevendean. Our local council seem to differ in opinion. My late aunt and uncle lived here when the houses were first built in 1931; when Braybons bought the land and built the private estate. This estate consisted of six roads: Widdicombe Way, Bevendean Crescent, Medmerry Hill, Nyetimber Hill, Beech Grove and Hillside Way. We had our own Bevendean Hotel and still have our own post office at No 36 Widdicombe Way, called Higher Bevendean Post Office.

My first house in the late 1970s was in Widdicombe Way. I still remember doin it up and removing the old air raid shelter near the back door. I still live in the Brighton area.
