Portslade is an area of Brighton and Hove. Portslade Village has a rich history, dating back to the 16th century and boosted by the arrival of the railway from Brighton. This happened in 1840 and saw quick development of the area which is now called Portslade-by-Sea. There is much evidence of this coastal town's historic past, including a rare surviving ruin of a Norman manor house, Portslade Manor, which dates back to the 12th century and is now a Scheduled Ancient Monument.

Portslade is home to a historic drink, too – Gran Stead's Ginger Co is based at Mile Oak Farm Portslade. Here, Chris and Rosemary Knox create their collection of five non-alcoholic drinks – Mellow Ginger, Fiery Ginger, Blackcurrant with Zing, Lemonade with Zing and a very lemony Still Lemonade! The drinks are in shops across the UK and are also exported to places such as Estonia, so Gran Stead's Ginger Co is a lovely local success story for Portslade.
