St. Margaret's Chapel was designed for Barnard Gregory the editor of the Brighton Gazette who named it after his wife Margaret. The Chapel opened on 26 Dec. 1824. During the 1800s the Chapel proved popular with fashionable society but attendances dwindled and the last service took place on 30th Sept. 1956. The Chapel was demolished in June 1959 to make way for the Metropole exhibition halls, Sussex Heights and a 250 space car park.
