Mystery over fenced off parking spaces at Buxted Rail Station

One day there were extra spaces in an extension to Buxted Railway Station car park … the next they were fenced off with no access for commuters.

There’s been no official explanation for why. Southern Rail, operators of the Uckfield Line, told Uckfield News it was a Network Rail issue and Network Rail has not yet responded to queries.

Buxted Parish Council believes there is an issue with the lease of the land.

An extract from the minutes of a full council meeting held earlier this month say: “There has apparently been issues with the lease of this land which has meant that Network Rail reclaimed the land and fenced it.”
