Synopsis

'Preston, once a village with an independent life, is now Brighton', wrote Edward Verrall Lucas of the main subject of this volume in 1904. The same thing might also be said of Patcham and its hamlet of Withdean, which are the other protagonists within these covers. Preston and Withdean were noted for their trees in the 'barren waste' of Brighton. Their modern development followed the 1854 removal of the Preston turnpike. This volume is arranged geographically as a series of five textual peregrinations through Preston, Withdean, Surrenden and Patcham. One starts from the Preston viaduct while others commence from Preston Park Avenue, Preston Circus, Preston Drove and Preston Park's Rose Garden. The many previously unpublished illustrations come from the author's collection.

Anthony Beeson was born in 1948. Having worked at the Courtauld Institute of Art Library, he moved to Bristol in 1972 to become Fine Art Librarian, and over the following thirty-seven years developed the Bristol Art Library into one of the finest British public collections of art books. He is a noted classical iconographer who has written extensively in academic journals, lectured on Romano-British art and appeared on the television programme Time Team. As a trustee of the Association for Roman Archaeology and former archivist for the Association for the Study and Preservation of Roman Mosaics, in 2000 he reassembled the many thousands of fragments of the 'lost' Orpheus mosaic from Newton St Loe for Bristol Museum. As an expert in palaeoimagery he has acted as a consultant and designer for a new range of toy dinosaurs. His previous books include Bristol Central Library and Charles Holden by Redcliffe, 2006, and Central Bristol Through Time, Amberley, 2012. He lives in Coombe Dingle, Bristol.
