Brightoniana: London Brighton & South Coast Railway stone

I don’t really know what this is, but I snapped it. It’s a stone in the central reservation of the barrier at the west end of the railway bridge at the junction where New England and Old Shoreham Roads meet. I guess, technically, that it’s on New England Road.

It obviously has a railway connection. LB&SCR (London, Brighton and South Coast Railway) is our clue there. But otherwise, I’m not sure at all what it means.

  2. Interesting. I’m sure you are right about the LBSCR. But what about the HL? Hove LIne?
