We commissioned a

This was unveiled by the Worshipful Mayor of Brighton & Hove Counsellor Carol
Theobald here on the right of Keith and Sophie Curtis. Mocatta was a pupil of
Sir John Soane, the designer of the Bank of England, on which he is reputed to
have had a significant role. He was the architect of Brighton Station and the Ouse
Valley Viaduct. This blue plaque now forms part of the Regency Society’s walk.
