TODAY’s edition of Timeout focuses on historic buildings and renovations in Brighton and Hove.

Rev Geoff Whitfield can be seen above taking part in the building of a new church hall in Moulsecoomb Way, Brighton, in 1963.

He is also pictured standing next to Sir Herbert James at the new church hall.

Do you remember what involvement Sir Herbert had in the development of the church hall?

The building was named St Francis Of Assisi Catholic Church Hall.

Having completed his degree in Britain, Nick Tyson began to work at the University of Michigan, specialising in protein chemistry and molecular genetics.

In 1984, Nick returned to Brighton for the summer vacation and fate stepped in.

After his time in the USA, he observed that Brighton and Hove’s historic buildings were being converted with little care and attention, which concerned him.

Nick and his partner, who The Argus believes to be Margrit Bass, bought the lease of an uninhabitable basement flat at 13 Brunswick Square, Hove, and decided to take a year out to restore it before returning to America.

Leases on the surrounding flats began to become available and Nick could see the possibility of restoring the house to bring it back to its former glory.

The pair went about restoring the fireplaces, completing the dining room and drawing room at number 13 and the housekeeper’s room and wine cellar at number 10 so they could be fully furnished for public viewing.

A number of high-profile Armed Forces personnel have lived in Brunswick Square over the years.

Admiral Sir George Augustus Westphal (1785-1875) used to live there, along with Major General Webber Smith of the Royal Artillery.

Captain Richard Heaviside asked a man named John Gregory Crace to design the interior decoration of his residence at Brunswick Square.
