Southern Region Signal Boxes

Hampden Park

Hampden Park signal box on the ex-LBSCR line from Lewes to Eastbourne. This signal box was built in the 1888. When I originally started watching trains in 1956, this box was fitted with a large wheel to manually operate the level crossing gates which have since been replaced with half barriers. 

The photo was taken from a Eastbourne-Victoria train on Sunday June 6th, 1999.
