On the side of the building on the corner of the main road, is the location of the Blue Plaque dedicated to former soldiers, inmates, patients and staff of St Mary's hospital and barracks.

The Eastbourne Workhouse stood on this site from 1834 - 1919. It later became St Mary's Hospital. The Head Nurse at the hospital between 1924 - 1948 was Miss Mary Letheren and when the hospital was demolished in 1990 this new road was named after her.
