Brighton Marina Village, Brighton, East Sussex, BN2 5UT
Formerly a pub called Jackson’s Wharf, this large, two-storey building takes its name from its location on the marina’s west quay. Located at the foot of the cliffs at Black Rock, east of the city centre, Brighton Marina was officially opened in 1979. The marina has since been developed in stages, acquiring its first public house (The Master Mariner) in 1987. Jackson’s Wharf was granted planning permission in December 1998 and began trading soon after.
Photographs and text about Black Rock.
The text reads: Black Rock is where the South Downs meets the sea. The area probably gets its name from the large rock that lay at the foot of the white chalk cliffs.
The lower level of the cliffs is made up of a 100,000 year-old beach. Above it lies a 45 feet thick layer of Coombe Rock, which
has yielded fossil remains of mammoths, rhinos and hippos.
Until the building of Brighton Marina, Black Rock was best known for its art-deco style swimming pool, built in 1936. Situated at what is now the entrance to The Marina, it was a well-known landmark until the mid-1970s.
