Bingo! Thanks Wiggy - yes Chuters Gardens. It has now been demolished but was part of The Lanes area according to www.brightonhistory.org.uk/streets/streets_c.html (via Google).

Thanks all :-)

Chesters Gardens. As daisypetal says, it's clearly written as that in the description of the enumeration district.

You're right, not Chesters but Chuters.

Edit  What I had originally read as the 'es' of Chesters I now see is actually a letter 'u'.

Thanks Jool - that's fab. I have walked into the church here and never knew this little street had existed!
