Lewes bonfire 2019
Lewes bonfire takers place every year on 5th November with many people attending the festivities. Due to the large number of attendees, we along with emergency services and other organisations are reminding people that Lewes Bonfire night celebrations will mean changes to train services and a number of road closures in the area.
Plans for rail travel on 5th November are as follows:
- There will be no trains calling at Lewes, Glynde and Southease after 17.00 in line with the Lewes Road closure order
- There will be no trains calling at Cooksbridge after the 16.16 from Victoria to Eastbourne has stopped there at 17.20
- There will be no trains calling at Falmer after the departure of the 18.31 Brighton to Hastings service at 18.40.
No trains will call at the above stations until the first timetabled trains on the morning of the 6th November.
We recognise that there will be an impact on train passengers and road users who are not planning to attend the event. The decision to bring in travel restrictions has been made in the best interests of safety. We hope that those who are inconvenienced will understand that and have time to make alternative arrangements where possible.
