Brighton School, Brighton
This was an enjoyable restoration and replacement project. Because the school had changed its name, the carved scrolled pediment over the front entrance needed to be recarved to depict its new name.

The badly eroded original Bath limestone scrolls were therefore carefully cut-out and the school's new name was recarved in its original raised lettering form onto the freshly hand-cut scrolls. Much of the foliage needed recarving as well.

Likewise, small elements were carved and replaced to the figurehead.

Carving may be seen at front entrance to:  Brighton and Sussex Sixth Form College, Brighton Sussex.
