My photo postcard of Brighton, January 2016

Regency Brighton continues to benefit from investment and construction. There’s a bold new development at the Marina, which unfortunately dominates the view towards the white cliffs of the Severn Sisters. And in the westerly direction the steel column (162 m.) of the nearly-completed Brighton i360 viewing platform replaces the Victorian wrought iron of the much-loved West Pier, long since ruined first by fire and latterly by prevarication.
The Brighton Pavilion North gatehouse dates from about 1774.
