TQ3303 : Black Rock Station

taken 11 years ago, near to Kemp Town, Brighton And Hove, Great Britain

Black Rock Station
Black Rock Station
Modern day terminus for the Volks Railway the oldest running electric railway in the world. Opened in 1883 it is still going strong today. The original terminus was at Banjo Groyne but when the Daddy Longlegs Railway was closed in 1901 it was decided to extend the Volks Railway to Black Rock. The Black Rock area was originally a quieter beach area at the eastern end of Brighton but attractions soon followed. The area to the left of the photo just out of shot was made into an open air swimming pool which survived until the late 1970s. From 1976 onwards it was able to serve the newly opened Brighton Marina and some point in the future it will serve whatever amenity Brighton Council actually decide to build on the site of the old swimming pool.
