  • I will be reviewing this in stages, probably one for each of the five articles --NSH001 (talk) 22:14, 17 January 2012 (UTC)
  • hook - length and format OK, plenty of citations to support the hook (AGF for book refs)
  • image - free licence, alt text in hook, appears in both relevant articles, all OK
  • all articles - are sufficiently new
  • general comment - the many book refs mean I am unable to check for plagiarism or accurate summary of citations, but given this editor's long record of contributions on similar topics, I have little doubt they will be fine.
  • 163 North Street, Brighton
    • length OK, book refs accepted AGF, well-referenced
    • little niggle: I dislike the ugly "as of" in the lede. Should be re-phrased, but this is just my personal preference.
  • 155–158 North Street, Brighton
    • length OK, book refs accepted AGF, well-referenced
  • Gwydyr Mansions
    • length OK, book refs accepted AGF, well-referenced
    • "Goldsmid's descendants owned the site; they transferred it in 1890". This puzzled me: who did they transfer it to and why? Was it a sale to the chuch or pastor?
  • First Church of Christ, Scientist (Brighton)
    • length OK, book refs accepted AGF, well-referenced
  • Clayton & Black
    • length OK, book refs accepted AGF, well-referenced
    • Lede - "pink Baroque-style head office for the Royal Assurance Society" - I doubt it was the Royal's head office, which, as far as I am aware, was in Liverpool until the merger with Sun Alliance in 1996
    • Hannington's Depository - neither do I think this was L&G's head office.
  • Symbol question.svg - a few queries to be addressed, see above. --NSH001 (talk) 00:30, 18 January 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for your review and the copyediting of the articles. I will check the land transfer details when I get home (~10 hours); other changes have been made as suggested (Diff 1; Diff 2). Cheers, Hassocks5489 (tickets please!) 08:41, 19 January 2012 (UTC)
Symbol redirect vote 4.svg This diff shows the rewording on Gwydyr Mansions. The ref is not explicit on how the land was acquired, although the implication is that it was bought by the pastor. Hassocks5489 (tickets please!) 20:43, 19 January 2012 (UTC)
... a rich cleric, by the sound of it! OK, that's good enough for me.
