West Blatchington


West Blatchington

West Blatchington is an area in Hove, East Sussex, England.

The area grew rapidly in the inter-war period, but unlike nearby Hangleton it had more infrastructure, with St Peter's Church, a working farm, a windmill and an industrial area grouped around the Goldstone Pumping Station and its workers' cottages.cite web|title=Welcome to West Blatchington|url=http://www.mybrightonandhove.org.uk/page_id__6866_path__0p114p129p1253p.aspx|accessdate=2008-09-27|publisher=My Brighton and Hove (c/o QueensPark Books)|date=2006-03-22|work=My Brighton and Hove website]

Blatchington Mill School, formed in 1979 from the Hove County Grammar School, Knoll Boys School and Nevill Secondary School, lies in the centre of West Blatchington.

The area is crossed by the Monarch's Way long-distance footpath, heading towards its terminus at Shoreham-by-Sea.
