Listing Text


577-1/48/480 (South side)
Shelter opposite Marine Square


Promenade shelter. c1883-7. Cast-iron and wood, roof of metal.
The shelter consists of 6 cast-iron columns with 4 brackets
attached to their upper parts; the 2 inner columns are set
closer together so that their brackets touch, forming a round
arch; the brackets have openwork spandrels. Between these
columns, the shelter is framed up with tongue-and-groove
panelling to a height of about 3 feet and then with glazed
panels above, the glazing renewed. Wooden benches possibly of
a date with the shelter fill the spaces between the columns, 2
to each side, facing north and south, and there are additional
smaller seats on brackets at either end, facing east and west.
The underside of the roof is panelled, the roof itself hipped
with louvred gablets.
(Carder T: The Encyclopaedia of Brighton: Lewes: 1990-).
