"My name is Geoff. I know the North Laine area very well; I've always been interested in it. I used to be intrigued by the little streets - how you could get from my house down into the town and never go the same way.
Every other area of Brighton is certainly Brighton, but I didn't know those areas as well as I knew the North Laine. I wanted to get under the skin, and the only place I could do that was the North Laine."
The Local Historian's Tour was created for the 'My Brighton' museum exhibit, launched in 1995.
