Re: High speed rail link

I believe that when the line was originally built the tunnels on the Hastings Line were made on the small side,deliberately so that money could be saved. and cannot be enlarged to take double traffic and this is the reason why it takes longer to reach London..

Re: Alma's Pub in Hastings, Sussex, England

Re: Hydenye Boys School

Did the school later amalgamate with Glengorse School in Battle ? which later in the 1980's amalgamated with Battle School..So you had Glengorse which was originally an Eastbourne school which united with Telham which then in turn took in Hydeye and which then combined with Battle
