Used my over 65 bus pass today for a day out. Decided to visit Lewes to explore the route of the closed railway in the town, The railway crossed the High Street on a viaduct and then bridged the river close to Harvey's Brewery and then struck out for Uckfield.
The line's closure had more to with the political machinations of the pro-road East Sussex County Council than a post Beeching railway closure.
The railway stood on land the Council wished to use to build an inner by-pass. Named Phoenix Way, the by-pass only advanced a few yards before petering out in the narrow roads of Lewes . An expensive folly.
