Having donned hard hats a tally and gloves to protect our hands from rats which have been known to scurry along the hand rails, we were also warned about open cuts coming into contact with rats urine which can lead to Weil's disease.

Steine House

Designed in 1804 by William Porden, who was responsible for many buildings on the Prince's Royal Pavilion estate, it was used by Fitzherbert until her death 33 years later. Regular rebuilding has affected the appearance of the house since 1805, when it was damaged by a storm; more changes took place in 1884, when the YMCA bought it, and the building was "cruelly treated" by a refronting and extension in 1927. The YMCA continue to use the building, on Brighton's Old Steine next to Marlborough House, as a 65-person hostel. The extensive alterations have reduced its architectural importance, but the building has been listed at Grade II by English Heritage for its historical connections. History[edit] Steine House survived an attempt in 1964 to demolish it and replace it with offices, shops and a showroom.
