Portslade is a settlement near Brighton Hove. The area, divided by the A270 road, includes houses and a shopping centre in the south, around the Copperas Gap, which was named Portslade-by-Sea in 1896, as distinct to Portslade Village, a mile to the north. The southern sector has an interesting seafront with Shoreham Harbour to the west and Brighton Hove’s vibrant coastline to the east. Portslade Village is rather rural and there is a lovely village green, parish church and various buildings of architectural merit, including flint constructions. Portslade Manor, a Norman building, was built in the 12th century.
This bi-section of Portslade into two residential areas is bolstered somewhat by the B2194 and A270 roads. Yet residents are plucky and welcoming, whether they live higher up on the Mile Oak Road or elsewhere such as Hallyburton Road, Portland Road, Benfield Way or Foredown Road.
>Some historians believe that Portslade is the descendant of a Roman port known as ‘Novus Portus’ as noted in Ptolemy’s geographical studies of the second century AD. A Roman road is believed to have been the predecessor to Drove Road in the village, which is known as the London to Portslade Way and takes any given traveller from Portslade to Patcham and then onto Haywards Heath until it reaches the urban frontier of Streatham in London. Roman burial remains and artefacts have been found at the Roman road site. Portslade itself, is is argued, has Roman roots in its etymological formation although others argue that it is Old English in origin. In any event, Portslade-By-Sea’s original name, Copperas Gap, makes it likely that manufacturing of ferrous sulphate played a major role in textiles in those ancient days.
