Lewes Road Station looking towards Ditchling Road. One of the houses in Richmond Road can be seen on the far left behind the main station building. Surprisingly, the redevelopment of the station and railway site has encroached very little on Richmond Road; apart from the area which was adjoining the forecourt, both the road and surrounding houses remain unchanged.

The station building went through various nefarious phases of alternative usage once the station closed down. For a short while it was used as a pickle factory, later (and more conventionally) as a builder’s merchant yard before eventual closure.
