      Bute Hall (St Matthew's Bute Mission Hall) was built in 1892 to serve a Sunday school for St Matthew's. The foundation stone was laid by the mayor and mayoress, Sir Joseph and Lady Ewart. With the closure of the church the hall was used as a nursery. It is now in commercial use.
      St Matthew's Church was initially designed by the local firm of Edmund Evan Scott (d. 1895) and Robert Singer Hyde (1845-1913) and completed by London architect John Norton (1828-1904). It was built in 1881-1883 on the corner of College Terrace on land donated by W P Boxall (see Belle Vue Gardens). In fact, he had to donate the money to the diocese, which then used the money to buy the land from him. The church closed in 1962 and was demolished in 1967. An apartment block occupies the site.

Sweet Hill, Patcham Land to the north of the A27, between Waterhall and the A23, part of 1,300 acres of downland sold by the Abergavenny Estate to local property developer Thomas Gasson in July 1921, outbidding Brighton Corporation. The land developed as 'plotland' with no amenities or domestic services, selling (often to ex-servicemen) at £10 for a quarter acre. Brighton Corporation acquired the land in 1924 and it was incorporated into Greater Brighton in 1928 under the Brighton Corporation Act 1927. The settlements and smallholdings remained and gradually decayed over the next decade. An abortive plan to build a film studio here was floated in March 19601. The area is now within the South Downs National Park. 1National Archives COU 1/376
