A detailed look at the course of this little branch line that ran from Brighton station to what is now Freshfields Industrial Estate. See where it left the current day Brighton to Lewes line, the site of Lewes Road station, where the brick viaduct crossed the Lewes Road (and some foundations still visible !), the site of Hartington Road halt, the cutting it went into before entering a tunnel under Elm Grove and where it emerged at the terminus.
Features footage taken inside the tunnel along the its whole length from the sealed off end at Elm Grove to the open south portal using a 5,000,000 candle power torch for extra illumination, gripping stuff! Especially when I cornered four foxes at the sealed off end ! Includes constant running commentary.
Additional footage shot in 2007 during a group guided tour shows improved and detailed shots of the inside of the sealed northern tunnel mouth. Also visible is a small shrine in the chalk cliffs next to the southern portal that I missed on the first occasion.
