I remember seeing this cabinet on the wall. I first saw
it in the 1960s.
- Inside the cabinet, there was a barometer.
- On the notice board to the right was a list of the
times of high tide.
- Engraved in the stonework on the pediment is a fishing
boat with sail.
No 5 is to the left of Newhaven Free Church (now a climbing
centre) at Nos.7-8 Pier Place, as we look at the buildings from Newhaven
The tenement at No.5 Pier Place was built, around 1840,
as residential accommodation for The Society of Free Fishermen.
