The first passenger train from Lewes to Newhaven ran on 8th December 1847, the extension from Newhaven to Seaford being opened on 1st June 1864 whilst Southease and Rodmell Halt opened 1st September 1906. The line was electrified throughout on 4th July 1935.
Stonegate Stonegate station looking towards Hastings in March 1986, a few weeks before the start of electric services. South of Tunbridge Wells the Hastings line has some imposing stations, mostly built in stone. All were smartened up for the coming electrification and the treatment received by Stonegate (including a new footbridge) is evident in this photograph. The staggered platform arrangement, which was a feature of many SER country stations, is also evident. Stonegate is in open countryside, some distance from the village it purports to serve, but is well used by commuters from the surrounding area.
