A book highlighting Eastbourne’s diverse architectural gems will be launched next month.

Eastbourne In Detail has now been published and features 20 different chapters, hundreds of photographs and a history of some of the town’s more unusual pieces of architecture.

From the unusual gargoyle in Eastbourne Railway Station to stunning glass and brickwork at the All Souls Byzantine church in Susans Road, the hardback book has almost 20 chapters.

The book is the brainchild of publisher Edward Dickinson after his architect daughter published a book on Salisbury’s architectural landmarks. He has been helped by Eastbourne architect Richard Crook, Nicholas Howell from the Heritage Centre, the Compton Estate and others interested in history and architecture.
