The comprehensive, lasting record of how our best-loved buildings look today.


GROVE TUNNEL

As part of the original line to Eastbourne, this 183-yard tunnel follows a straight course except for a slight curve to the north at its eastern end. Horseshoe in profile, it features a red brick lining of five rings - 15'7" high and 13'9" wide at track level.

When Grove Junction was removed as part of British Rail's 1983 upgrade to the Tonbridge-Hastings line, the decision was taken to close the route. The last train ran through Grove Tunnel on 6th July 1985.
