“Life above the Tunnel”

A Talk by David Porter

April 2nd at 2.30 p.m. at Storrington Museum,
Old School, School Lane, Storrington RH20 4LL.

David has lived at the Clayton Tunnel North Portal, which is 7 miles outside Brighton, since 2003. After clearing the land of decades of rubbish and cutting back the rampant vegetation that seeks to overcome the cottage, he has sought to bring the story of this unique building to the attention of a wider audience through talks and the occasional tour.

David is an experienced public speaker and, during his day job, works as a freelance fraud investigator. In this talk he explains this Gothic folly’s historic origins and features a bold Victorian architect, plucky railway families, all manner of flora and fauna, railway disasters, secret passages and a few ghosts.

Venue: Old School, School Lane, Storrington RH20 4LL.

Members £6. Non Members £8. All welcome

Teas & Coffees will be available after the talk.
