Help Us Restore Brighton's Historic Gateway!

by Brighton Toy and Model Museum in Brighton, Brighton and Hove, United Kingdom

We're still collecting donations

On the 5th July 2024 we'd raised £1,000 with 23 supporters in 56 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

The Vision:

Brighton Toy and Model Museum is leading a regeneration plan for the upper section of Trafalgar Street, aiming to transform it into a vibrant pedestrian gateway to the North Laine. Currently, the area suffers from boarded-up arches and graffiti, creating an unwelcoming atmosphere. We plan to replace these boarded-up arches with ornamental framed glasswork, reminiscent of the interwar years, restoring the area's charm and historical significance and are looking to raise the initial £10,000 with your support. 1715083945_ccbe6cda-8bf2-4a73-bf9d-0414ad68faf5.jpg

Why It Matters:

This section of Trafalgar Street holds significant historical importance, dating back to the 1841 station era. It was once a bustling gateway for travellers, but over time, neglect and urban decay have taken their toll. By revitalizing this area, we not only restore its heritage but also create a welcoming entrance for tourists arriving in Brighton.

Our Solution:

We propose refitting the arches with ornamental framed glasswork, reminiscent of the interwar era when the station entrance was active. This will not only beautify the area but also deter graffiti and vandalism, making it a safer and more inviting space for locals and tourists alike. With your support, we can bring this vision to life and turn Trafalgar Street into a vibrant hub once again.

How You Can Help:

Your contribution will go directly towards the restoration efforts, including the installation of framed glasswork, preservation of historical elements, and ongoing maintenance. Every donation, no matter how small, brings us one step closer to our goal of revitalizing Brighton's historic gateway.

Join Us Today:

Together, we can preserve Brighton's rich heritage and create a lasting legacy for future generations. Join us in restoring Trafalgar Street to its former glory and reimagining it as a thriving cultural and tourist destination. 

Thank you for your support!
