Built by Kier Construction, The Keep is a major partnership project between East Sussex County Council, Brighton & Hove City Council and the University of Sussex and combines state-of-the-art storage for archives with excellent visitor facilities. It will eventually house over six miles of archives and resources dating back 900 years.

Over the past few months curators have been moving and installing thousands of items from the city and East Sussex, including around 350,000 items from the Royal Pavilion & Museums and archives from the University of Sussex which include the Mass Observation and Kipling Archives.
