Lewes History Group Meeting – Monday 11 November 2013, 7:00 for 7:30pm

John Hollands: Lewes’ Railway Connections

Railway enthusiast John Hollands will talk about how Lewes became connected to our railway network, and other matters associated with its complicated history in the nineteenth century, including why Lewes has had three stations; the impact railways had on the town; some notable comings and goings; and what Mr Burwood Godlee of Leighside had to do with it all.

John’s father was a railway worker, and as a child, he spent much time watching train movements from his father’s allotment on what was once the Leighside Estate, now the Railway Land.
