London Road station (2)
The railway line from Brighton to Lewes was built in 1846. In 1869, the Kemp Town branch, which diverged from the Lewes line on the far side of Ditchling Road, was completed. Eight years later, in 1877, London Road station was built on level ground between the London Road viaduct and the cutting leading to the short tunnel under Ditchling Road. The station was designed by the architect David Mocatta, who also designed Brighton station. {Source: "A Short History of London Road Station" - information board at the station.}
