One of the lesser known railways of Sussex, probably because it never actually ran. It was to have started at Skew Bridge, just south of the Balcombe viaduct on the London-Brighton mainline, and then in a south-easterly direction through Lindfield and on to Uckfield.
Numerous visible earthworks and brickworkings are still visible, including the site of what would have been Lindfield station. Spectacular earthworks on the outskirts of Uckfield including the site of a proposed tunnel and the one remaining bridge on the line that hasn’t been demolished, but is looking a bit fragile. The conversion of a deep cutting into a beautiful garden lake near Lindfield is another highlight. A thorough walk along the entire length of the line gives an indepth view of all that remains with commentary included.
