Brighton Devil’s Dyke Steep Grade Line

£5.00

The long-disused course of the funicular railway that used to run from the base of the north face of the Downs near Poynings, straight up the scarp slope to the Devil’s Dyke is examined here. See the brick remains of the engine shed at the top and the base station at the bottom. See also the views that the Victorians would have had out of the back of the carriage as they rode up the hillside; I dragged my camera up the course of the line on a sledge to achieve the effect ! It was exhausting and delightfully treacherous. Some stills of this line in its heyday are also featured. Includes commentary.
