Interesting facts about Brighton:

SAXON BRIGHTON

Brighton began as a Saxon village. The Saxons conquered Sussex in the 5th century AD. One of them was called Beorthelm. He owned a farm (in Saxon a tun) called Beorthelm's tun, which, in time grew into the town of Brighton. As well as farmers there were fishermen in the village. Brighton overlooked a cliff and the fishermen's huts were under this cliff on the foreshore.

The Church of St Bartholomew in Brighton was first mentioned in 1185. (Though it probably existed long before then).

BRIGHTON IN THE 20th CENTURY

During World War I the Pavilion was used as a hospital for Indian soldiers.

The first cinemas opened in Brighton in 1909. A boating pool was built in Brighton in 1925. A children's playground was laid out on The Level in 1927. The aquarium was rebuilt in 1929. A rock garden in Preston Park was laid out in 1936.

In 1928 the boundaries of Brighton were extended. In the 1930s a sea wall was built from Black Rock to Rottingdean to prevent erosion.

The task of clearing the slums in the centre of the town was undertaken in the 1930s. Many fishermen's villages, though they might look picturesque were actually, cramped, squalid and unsanitary. A new market was built in Circus Street in 1937 on the site of demolished slums. Some of the slums were replaced with 4 storey flats. Meanwhile the council began building council houses. An estate was built at Whitehawk.

Also in the 1930s The Western side of West Street was demolished to widen the road. Many private houses were also built at that time, in Patcham, Falmer and Ovingdean.

Trams ran in Brighton between 1901 and 1939. In 1904 came the first motor buses. In 1939 the trams were replaced with trolley buses, which ran on electricity from overhead wires but did not use rails.

When World War II began in 1939 many schoolchildren from London were evacuated to Brighton to escape the bombing. Since Brighton was, of course, a seaside resort rather than a manufacturing town it was anticipated it would escape bombing. Most of the evacuees soon returned home, however. Yet Brighton was not as safe as people thought it would be and the town suffered considerable damage as a result of bombing. There were 56 raids in all and over 5,000 houses were damaged or destroyed.

After World War II The Lanes managed to escape the ravages of town planning but in the mid-1960s Churchill Square was laid out.

In the 1950s a new industrial estate was built at Hollingbury. Also in the 1950s and early 1960s a council estate was built at Hollingbury.

Sussex University was founded in 1962. Although Brighton continued to flourish as a seaside resort West Pier closed in 1975. The Brighton Centre, which is used for conferences, was opened in 1977. A marina opened at Black Rock in 1978.

BRIGHTON IN THE 21st CENTURY

Brighton and Hove was made a city in 2000. In December 2002 West Pier partly collapsed when severe weather hit Brighton. Unfortunately Brighton's other pier the Palace Pier was damaged by fire in February 2003.

A new library, The Jubilee Library, opened in Brighton in 2005.
