The Georgian Group Online Lecture: Thomas Read Kent

15th Oct, 2024
Online event

Thomas Read Kemp of Kemp Town in Brighton is a great example of an entrepreneurial developer of the 1820s who overstretched himself, although contrary to a long-established myth, Kemp was not bankrupted. Most were. Although none of Kemp's projects were completed, they had a significant impact on Brighton's landscape in the 1820s and evidence for most of them survives. There must be other ambitious people whose aspirations ran ahead of their ability to complete projects but helped to shape townscapes of the later eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries like Kemp.
