Regent House used to house Hove Fire Station (1926-1976). The 2 arched windows were the garage for the fire engines and the roadway to the right, now leading to a block of flats, led to the parade ground and where the training tower used to be.
@PeeJay - thank you for the information! Jan
You're welcome:) My Dad was a fireman there from the 1940s to the 1960s and I spent many a happy time 'clanging' the bells on the engines when I went there with him as a young child. (No klaxons in those days) A couple of old pics - http://www.esfrs.org/image/stations/stn02Hove/photos/stn2_hove_st_app1.jpg andhttp://www.esfrs.org/image/stations/stn02Hove/photos/1960s_HoveSt.jpg... just in case you're interested :) Pam
