Mend the gap

The Sussex Express reports the sad demise of Uckfield railway station, a victim of public neglect, vandals and the recent floods. The Victorian station went the way of the Lewes-Uckfield railway line, which closed on February 23, 1969. Strenuous attempts by campaigners to reinstate the line, thereby opening up another route to London from the south coast, have resulted in much talk from the many authorities involved but to date no action.
