November's meeting on Tuesday 21st will be a talk on Brighton Secret Garden by Professor Gavin Henderson CBE.
"The Secret Garden originally belonged to 32 Sussex Square which was bought by its first owner, Laurence Peel, younger brother of the Prime Minister, in 1830. Several of the grand houses in the square had extensive gardens, each of which was accessed through a tunnel leading from the appropriate house. The Secret Garden is now the only one of these remaining. It is ‘secret’ because it is an oasis, a delightful walled garden hidden from view, in the midst of suburban Kemp Town".
