DEVELOPMENT PLANS!
I can’t find any history on this pub. The only bits and bobs I have been told are by my friends parents who used to drink in there when they were younger. It was apparently an amazing student pub, perfect for the Moulsecoomb residents to go to and relax at. The Lectern Pub is on Lewes Road has been abandoned for a while now. However the plans to transform the unusual property into nearly 200 student flats is actually happening! According to most of my research the property developer “CKC Properties” has submitted planning permission applications in the hope of providing 189 homes suitable for students in its place. The old pub has been closed for three years! But the developers main aim is to use the Lectern site to house its students. I know some of the locals have raised concerns about the potential development. According to some sites, Coombe Road chairwoman, Rebecca Barkaway, had apparently questioned the need for further student accommodation in the area, claiming it’s already heavily populated with students. She said “Brighton will come under more pressure to provide proper living spaces for people…By providing more student accommodation in the area we are alsfreeing up more houses to be used by families that would perhaps have been rented to students.” Also included in the plans for development is a shared community ‘hub’, shared student facilities and cycle storage for use by residents. The reason why I’ve been so open on the whereabouts of this location is, is simply because the place has been ripped out and also the whole place is nearly gone now anyway!

The Explore
When we drove past, the building looked untouched... we parked the car next to the university next door to the old pub, and started heading towards the Lectern. I lead my friend to the back where we jumped over the wall and started to walk to the back of the building. After shining our lights onto the building we was pleased to see the builders had knocked a little chunk off the back of the pub which meant we had a easy access! After climbing down rubble we got into the building to find our selves a little disappointed. The whole place had been ripped out! We still explored the whole place which only took around 5 minutes. I liked the peeling black ceiling and how the builders had kept the lampshades still hanging. I was happy to get in here as I have tried this place so many times the last year and a half and never got in. I filmed here for a little YouTube video that I’ll upload in a couple of weeks.
