Restoring Madeira Arches
November 7 at 7:00 pmfree of charge
The Madeira Arches need major restoration. The Council has raised over £460,000 through a crowd-funding campaign, £10,000 of which was donated by the Regency Society. However, this is only a fraction of the amount needed for complete restoration.
Our event on will help us understand how the problem has become so serious and what now needs to be done. We will also ask how the arches might be used once they have been restored.
There will be plenty of opportunity for comments and questions from the floor.
Malcolm Dawes is a retired engineer and programme co-ordinator of the Sussex Industrial Archaeology Society. He has read the various reports that have been produced about the arches in recent years, and will present a history of the various attempts to protect them.
Ed Morton is managing director of the Morton Partnership, (Engineers & Historic Building Specialists). He will talk about the problems associated with restoring structures of this type.
The evening will be chaired by David Robson who is a retired architect and former Regency Society trustee.
This event is free of charge and open to everyone, There is no need to book
