Bo-Peep Junction and Bo-Peep Tunnel, Western Portal
Bo-Peep Junction and Bo-Peep Tunnel, Western Portal
Cut into the side of a hill marked as Bo-Peep on the 1804 map. The name derives from the action of 'looking out for' which was first recorded in the 14th century and which is found along many stretches of coastline often overlooking well known smuggling haunts. The cliffs to the right offered an uninterrupted view of the then undeveloped coastline between Hastings and Bexhill and particularly the nearby beaches of Bulverhythe which was a popular landing spot. The name was consequently given to a nearby inn which in turn gave the name to both the railway junction and tunnel.
