The process required substantial tonnage of coal, delivered by horse-drawn cart on the unmade tracks in the vicinity, and removal of by-products including coke, coal tar, sulphur and ammonia.

An industrial site such as this, with a tall chimney and two gasometers next to the churchyard was a considerable intrusion on the populace of Hove, but not for still-distant and rapidly growing Brighton, the main centre of consumption.

Being situated in Hove it avoided the duty of £1 per 8 tons levied on coal by the Brighton Town Act of 1773.

A gasworks built east of Brighton in 1819, and therefore similarly exempt, was supplied by sailing brigs grounding at high tide, the crew tipping the coal down chutes into horse-drawn carts then re-floating on the next tide.

Although production of coal gas was notorious for the smell it produced, the company acquired land in the fields between Hove Street and St.

Andrew's Church, and in 1832 built a gasworks on a two-acre site.

This isolated location was ideal for smuggling and there was considerable illicit activity.

Hove smugglers became notorious, with contraband often being stored in the now partially repaired St. Tradition has it that The Ship Inn was a favourite rendezvous for the smugglers, and in 1794 soldiers were billeted there.

As part of local government reform, Brighton and Hove were merged, to form the borough of Brighton and Hove in 1997.

In 2001, the new borough officially attained city status.

The Manor is currently serving as a pub-restaurant and whilst it was once on open downland, it is now surrounded by the 20th-century Hangleton housing estate.
