The view from a corner of the churchyard would have been quite extensive on a less hazy day

After lunch, anxious moments at Kingscote station on the Bluebell Railway as we wait for the ticket office to open.

Our train waiting to take us south to Sheffield Park

British Railways Class 4 Tank locomotive No.80151 is the newest Brighton-built locomotive in preservation, having been built in 1957. It returned to steam on the Bluebell Railway in October 2001, after rescue from Barry scrapyard, and many years of repair, initially at Chappel & Wakes Colne.

Kingscote is currently the northern terminus of the Bluebell, until the extension to East Grinstead is completed.
