867 Arthur H Cox

Connections with Brighton and Hove : For 140 years, the name of Arthur H Cox was synonymous with Brighton and its pill factory as a familiar site in Brighton. It was an imposing building on the junction of Upper Lewes Road and Lewes Road. The firm eventually moved to North Devon because it would benefit from better grants in a deprived area and the factory was pulled down. It was replaced by the Sainsbury’s superstore, which contains echoes of the old factory in its design. Cox, an entrepreneurial Victorian businessman, was also on Brighton Council and served a term as Mayor. During that time he opened Preston Park.
