Isfield Station
Isfield Station
Home to the Lavender Line, about a mile and a half of preserved railway along the old Lewes to Uckfield Line. The line was closed in 1969 due to persistent flooding (something the preserved line had to contend with in 2000) and was cleared by a private owner in the 1980s. However, they were unable to continue so sold it to the preservation society that now runs the line. The name came from the coal merchants, A.E.Lavender and Son who had an office at the station. The structure is still there today. See LinkExternal link for more information. Taken from the gates of the old level crossing.
