Arthur and John Morris played an important role in the development of Coombe, Firle and Glynde Places in Sussex and worked on houses in Lewes. They dealt directly with clients even when there was an architect. Amon and Amon Henry Wilds worked mainly in two towns, Amon Henry shifting from builder to architect. He made a big impact on Brighton, designing houses, projects, churches and chapels.  There must have been many more local entrepreneurs like these and we need to know more about them. The Wilds moved to Brighton and undertook speculative development as well as worked for clients. The Morris family did not, Lewes did not offer the same opportunities. Sue Berry will investigate these interesting characters.

The talk starts at 6.30pm.
