The plaques were dedicated to David Mocatta, who designed the station building and was the architect of the London and Brighton railway, and John Saxby a railway signalling pioneer.

The plaques were made possible by the collaboration between  Brighton and Hove City Council and the City’s Heritage Commissioner, Mr Roger Amerena who said;

Both these two plaques which commemorate these two individuals are long overdue. They enrich the history of the building and what the railways have provided Brighton since it first opened all those years ago.

Brighton Station manager Beth Holbrook deserves much of the credit along with Mr Amerena for getting the project started and seeing it through to completion.
