Madeira Terrace and Madeira Walk and Lift Tower and Related Buildings, Madeira Drive, Brighton - Brighton and Hove, City of (UA)

The 850 metres of cast iron arches known as Madeira Terrace is an iconic feature of Brighton's eastern seafront. An important example of C19 engineering, and evocative of the late Victorian heyday of the seaside. The terrace is in a very poor and deteriorating condition. Its structural stability is a serious concern causing the 170 plus bays to be closed off to the public. The restoration of the whole of the terrace will require substantial funding. Listed Building Consent and Planning Permission have been granted for the repair, restoration and re-use of the first phase of 40 arches.
