£5 members/£7 non-members

Not enclosing land so that it was laid out in large blocks ready for development resulted in challenges for Georgian developers such as limitations imposed on the design of houses, and the much higher cost of assembling enough land on which to build even a short street. Brighton is used as an example of a town surrounded by a fossilised open field system and Sue Berry will explore how the enterprising builder developers dealt with it. Other towns, such as Portsmouth were faced with the same issue.

The talk starts at 6.30pm.
