Bluebell Railway

The famous Bluebell Railway is a heritage line that is mainly run by volunteers. It re-opened in 1960 and has since been a major tourist attraction that holds a number of special events throughout the year. There are over 30 steam trains at Bluebell Railway and nearly 150 carriages and wagons - many of these dates back to before the war.

The Bluebell Railway has made many appearances in films, television and music videos - for instance, this year's horror film The Woman in Black, Downton railway station in Downtwon Abbey is in fact Horsted Keynes station and other films such as 102 Dalmations, The Wind in the Willows and The Railway Children.

Nymans, Handcross, Haywards Heath

This photograph shows the romantic ruins of Nymans House through an arch. This typically English garden was developed from the late 19th century and became a National Trust property in 1953.

The house burnt down shortly after the 1920s, when it had just been turned into a Gothic mansion. Nymans House is surrounded by beautiful country gardens, filled with flowers, woods including a lake, cascades and avenues.
