Denman architectural drawings

The Denman family were long associated, locally, with the building and architectural professions. In recent years, following the cessation of the family's design activities, the bulk of the Denman archive has found its way to the Royal Institute of British Architects' British Drawings Collection. Here at the Town House though, we retain a small archive that represents the work of the family, particularly in relation to Sussex-based projects.

In 2011 we staged a small Denman exhibition as a part of Brighton & Hove Open Door.

Our volunteers Gilly and Ian are busy cataloging the Denman drawings over the coming months.  We will present highlights of their discoveries on our various social media feeds
