TODAY we look back at various buildings and attractions in Sussex, including the Bluebell Railway.

Paul Channon can be seen above riding a train on the heritage railway line running for 11 miles along the border between East and West Sussex.

The line is run by the Bluebell Railway Preservation Society.

Paul Channon’s full name is Henry Paul Guinness Channon, who was otherwise known as Baron Kelvedon.

He was a Conservative MP for Southend West for 38 years, from 1959 until 1997.

Mr Channon died in January 2007.

On the theme of trains, Dame Vera Lynn can also be seen above, with her nameplate at Isfield Station, near Uckfield in 1985.

A locomotive was sold to a Mr. D. Milham for his Lavender Line at Isfield, where it arrived in August 1984.

After some repairs it was renumbered as 3672 and named Dame Vera Lynn.

It was commissioned on August 6, 1985 by the Dame herself.

Dame Vera Lynn the train entered traffic on the railway in 1989 and over the next 10 years was put to good use.

Aside from accumulating in excess of 100,000 miles during her ten years in traffic, she also delighted staff and tens of thousands of passengers along the way.

Gwen Leete is shown above staring out over Brighton from her 15th storey flat in Theobald House, Brighton in 1989.

Theobald House sits towering at the back of Trafalgar Street, where Wood Street once ran.

Built in 1966, the brick tower contains 110 flats in groups of six per floor across 18 floors.

The build seems like an early attempt to sweep away the overcrowded terraces of North Laine and swap them for more modern flats.

Viscount Ullswater visited Foredown Tower Camera Obscura in Portslade, Brighton in 1991 and is pictured with former mayor of Hove, Audrey Buttimer.
