West Hill is the name given to the eastern part of Church Hill rising westwards from Brighton Station, Queen's Road and the central valley. It was developed in the 1840s and '50s with 'working-class' and 'middle-class' terraced housing near the station, and in the 1870s with large villa residences in the grounds of the former workhouse {83}. Designated a conservation area in 1977, the streets of main interest are detailed below, but see also "Dyke Road" and "Queen's Road"; also "Railways - Brighton Station", which was added to the conservation area in 1988

h) TERMINUS PLACE: An attractive little cul-de-sac of the 1840s, similar to the nearby Railway Street and Terminus Street. Nos.1-6, with bows and fanlight doorways, are included on the council's local list of buildings of special interest.
