Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Lavender Line is an informal name for a heritage railway based at Isfield Station, near Uckfield in East Sussex. The Lavender Line formed part of the Lewes to Uckfield Railway when it was opened on the 18 October 1858. Within 12 months of its opening, the branch had been integrated into the London, Brighton and South Coast Railway to safeguard the company's interests east of its London to Brighton main line. Ten years from its opening, Isfield saw through workings from Brighton to Tunbridge Wells and Tonbridge, via a new Uckfield-Groombridge link. This scheme necessitated track diversion work north of Lewes, to obviate trains having to reverse, and the branch therefore assumed a new course, entering Lewes from the North.show more
