Nicky's pictures inspired me to start exploring the area. Had great fun looking round the old house and the pillars and everything. Shame the site is soon for demolition.

Great photographs. More people should take the time to look around them rather then rushing about the city completely unaware of the great history surrounding them everyday.

It was great seeing these pictures, both my grandfather and great grandfather were fitters and worked here at Brighton Station. In the latter years my grandfather moved to Lancing to work before eventually retiring and then getting a job because of the boredom at a engraving factory near Hove Tip.

I used to stand on that bridge in the top picture, aged about 7 years old. My father used to work as a carriage and wagon examiner in the works at New England Road. He used to take me with him to collect his wages every Friday. I used to love standing on that bridge watching all the tank engines shunting and using the turntable in the shunting yard.
