Regent Street.

Regent St. developed on the causeway which originally  extended west from the site of the  Mason’s Arms on what became Victoria St, to serve the  Royal Clarence Hotel. The entrance to The Clarence was from this street (The coach entrance archway can still be seen) as there was then no vehicular access across the dunes from the seaward side.
