Sussex Railway Stations Through Time Summary

Sussex Railway Stations Through Time by Douglas d'Enno

It was in 1841 that the London & Brighton Railway constructed the line from Norwood (linking with the London & Croydon Railway) to the coast. The lines built between 1841 and 1868 formed a comprehensive countywide network, extending from Three Bridges to Midhurst and Chichester in the west and (via the South Eastern Railway) from Tunbridge Wells to Bexhill, thence to Rye, in the east. The county's coastal stations yield their own interesting story. Apart from the stations on main routes, those on branch lines and wayside halts are also included. In this book, Douglas d'Enno explores the absorbing and sometimes colourful story of one county's railway stations. The older photographs feature early postcards and carefully selected images from railway archives and publications. When juxtaposed with their present-day equivalents, the extent of the change in these facilities for rail passengers can be fully appreciated.

About Douglas d'Enno

In 1985, Douglas d'Enno's 'The Saltdean Story' - now difficult to obtain - was published and since then he has written 15 books, mainly of local or regional interest, including a parish history, two books on true crime in Brighton, and several 'Through Time' books on the Sussex area for Amberley. He has passed on to his readers his detailed knowledge of the county in all its attractive variety. He now contributes to a number of community magazines and continues to be active in the writing of books as well as translating from a number of European languages on a freelance basis despite having officially retired.
