Walled Garden, A Lot of Front and St Peters Church

"Walled Garden" :- Preston Park is near Preston Village which is located along London Road in Brighton (UK). It is the largest urban park in the city ( with 63 acres (250,000 m2) of lawns, formal borders and rose gardens, bowling greens, tennis courts and a small pond) and also where you will find the 'Preston Twins' which are considered to be the largest and oldest Elm trees in the world. This is a capture of the walled garden that is part of the Preston Manor estate which can be found at the Northern end of the park.

"A Lot of Front" :- A bright and sunny capture of the promenade, beach and sea as seen from the seafront at Brighton, England. The railings are from the 1800's but I have a feeling that the iron posts that block vehicle access down the ramps are much later and from the 20th Century. On the far right of the image you can see the skeletal remains of the old West Pier which was was built in 1866, closed to the public in 1975 and succumbed to a "suspicious" fire in 2003. The mast sticking up are from the boats that are 'parked up' on the shingle and pebbled beach down below.

"St Peter's Church" :- This is a capture of St Peter's Church, Brighton on the south coast of England. A previous image of mine made the church look like it was in the middle of nowhere ( Saint Peter's Church Trick Shot ) so I thought I'd post an alternative capture of it to show you all it's true location. The church sits on an island between two major roads, the A23 London Road and A270 Lewes Road. It is sometimes referred to as "Brighton's cathedral" and is a great example of the pre-Victorian Gothic Revival style. The church was built from 1824–28 to a design by Sir Charles Barry who was best known for his role in the rebuilding of the Palace of Westminster (also known as the Houses of Parliament) in London.
