Peachy Sky, The Mother Church and Brighton Dome Corn Exchange

"Peachy Sky" :- A serene vision of peacefulness and calm. Brighton beach as seen from the far Eastern end near the huge marina. The sun sets behind the coastal city and splays light out over the seaside resort.

"The Mother Church" :- Chichester Cathedral's full name is the Cathedral Church of the Holy Trinity. It was founded as a cathedral in 1075 and is the mother church of the Diocese of Chichester which covers East and West Sussex in England. She was called "the most typical English Cathedral" by the architectural historian Nikolaus Pevsner and has two unique architectural features (among England's medieval cathedrals) which are a free standing medieval bell tower and double aisles. Gustav Holst the composer of the "Planet Suite" is buried here.

"Brighton Dome Corn Exchange" :- It's odd looking at this image now as shortly after I took the photograph the canopy that has "Brighton Dome Corn Exchange" written on it was removed after being there since the 1960's. It's removal opened up the entrance and also allows visitors to actually have a good look at "Ceres" the Goddess of Corn who stands above the doors. The building was once riding school for the Prince of Wales. According to 'Doctor Brighton's Pavilion' "Following the acquisition of the Royal Pavilion estate in 1850 the building was slowly converted over time to public use. In October 1868 the corn market was transferred here and held every Thursday. This is how the building acquired it’s name as the ‘Corn Exchange’."
