Course of the Lewes to Uckfield Railway
Course of the Lewes to Uckfield Railway
The line between Lewes to Uckfield was shut in 1969 ostensibly due to flooding but in reality due to Lewes Council wanting to build the Phoenix Causeway bypass. The railway travelled through the Cliffe part of Lewes on a viaduct and via embankments, the latter being too expensive to bridge, so some agreement was reached with British Railways to dismantle the line and sell the land, a decision still being felt today by those using the truncated line from Uckfield to London. It was roughly at this point that the railway crossed the river.
