Here's an interesting clipping sent from Derek Gorham, showing the old cottages next to the Luxor.They were replaced by an office building, up until recently the premises of the Federation of Small Business but now vacant.
Two 250-year-old cottages, 5 and 7 South-street, Lancing, are being demolished and will provide a site for an office block to be built this year.
The cottages are owned by Brian Dodd and Co., estate agents, who have moved from 7 South-street into temporary offices next door. The buildings were too old old to be converted; at Mr Dodd’s former office the ceiling has had to be supported with beams, while 5 South street was full of damp and rot, and the stairs gave way.
The two end properties still recognisable with the offices slotted in.
