By Rail to Chichester 1846-2016


Tuesday January 28th
7.00 pm at West Sussex Record Office (£8.00)

An illustrated talk with Alan Green, exploring 170 years of Chichester's railway history.

The railway arrived in Chichester in 1846 as a line from Shoreham and soon extended west to Portsmouth. Later lines were built to Midhurst and then to Selsey (the legendary Selsey Tramway), making it possible to travel north, south, east and west by train - a situation which was only to last until 1935.
