Former Marine Hotel with No 60 Main Street. Previously stuccoed with timber architraves. One of many Newhaven properties refurbished by
Ian Lindsay & Partners during the 1970s, the building displays characteristics typical to all - harled and limewashed facades and timber sash and case windows. Despite harsh detailing and standardisation, work here must be acknowledged as a pioneering attempt to conserve and improve an entire fishing village. A substantial project with a clear philosophy, it contrasts with more recent restoration attempts and thus, illustrates the differing and developing attitudes towards conservation. Previously listed as 1 and 2 Main Street.
