A new book on Eastbourne’s historic and architectural gems was launched last week.
Eastbourne In Detail is a hard back book 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 is on sale now at various outlets in the town.
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.
The book was launched at the Grand Hotel on Wednesday evening.
The event began with introductions by the Earl of Burlington, Eastbourne mayor Janet Coles and Caroline Ansell MP.
At the launch were sponsors, photographers and other guests who had supported the publication of the book.
The book is on sale in shops, the Tourist Information Centre, the Towner art gallery and various other outlets with some of the proceeds going to organisations and charities locally.
