Restoration of the Corn Exchange's Goddess


An Art Deco statue depicting the Roman Goddess of Agriculture is being restored as part of the building refurbishment. Standing above the entrance to the Corn Exchange on Church Street, Ceres was sculpted in 1935 by renowned artist James Woodford OBE RA (1893-1976).

The statue was crafted by Woodford in a distinct ornamental style to compliment the architecture of the Royal Pavilion and Brighton Dome buildings. Specialist restoration work has been undertaken by local conservator, Sarah Mayfield.
