Ran from 1859 to 1971
I run a local history group on the internet, and some of us are very interested in the old Kemp Town railway which ran from Brighton Station to Coalbrook Road in Kemp Town from 1869 to 1971. We are particularly interested in the line at the Elm Grove end. We have exhausted photographs from books and the internet and wondered if anyone here would have old photographs or memories of the Elm Grove end that they could share with us?
Hartington Road Halt
Particular interest would be the Hartington Road Halt and the tunnel mouth that ran under Elm Grove school playground. So we were wondering anyone who lived in Bonchurch Road and Seville Street whose houses backed onto the railway may have personal photographs they might like to share with us all? Either from times when it was up and running or during its disused days.
We would love to hear from you on here or via email at:email@example.com
