is a town on the south coast of England, immediately to the west of its larger neighbour Brighton, with which it forms the unitary authority Brighton and Hove.
Hove is an ancient coastal settlement with St Andrew's Church being established in the 12th century.Due to spiralling demand a large new works was opened in Shoreham Harbour at Portslade-by-Sea in 1871, and by 1885 all gas manufacture in Brighton and Hove had been transferred there.The Hove site, in a by now primarily residential area, was then used for storage only.This isolated location was ideal for smuggling and there was considerable illicit activity.Hove smugglers became notorious, with contraband often being stored in the now partially repaired St. Tradition has it that The Ship Inn was a favourite rendezvous for the smugglers, and in 1794 soldiers were billeted there.
A prominent feature of the landscape since 1200 BC, the 20 feet (6.1 m)-high tumulus yielded, among other treasures, the Hove amber cup.
