We hatched a plan
The two photographs here were taken sometime in 1965 when Kemp Town Station was still operational. Myself and two friends, all from Woodingdean, were interested in taking a trip to Kemp Town Station before it was closed. Between us we hatched a plan to access the whole line from London Road Station. These were the only shots I took, and I think the one looking out of the tunnel mouth into the station complex must be unique!

No trains on a Sunday
We managed to scramble through a hole in the fence onto the track and walked over Lewes Road Viaduct. We proceeded to walk through the approach cutting near Elm Grove and walked through the tunnel to Kemp Town Station. Fortunately we had remembered our torches and also made sure we went on a Sunday when presumably there were no trains running.
