Welcome To The Lavender Line

The Lavender line is a preserved railway that boasts a fantastic family atmosphere in the heart of East Sussex. The railway travels for a two mile round trip between the village of Isfield and Worth halt located in the Parish of Little Horsted. At Isfield you will find the headquarters of the Lavender line which includes our original Victorian station and signal box.

Come and enjoy the sights and sounds of a preserved railway whilst travelling through the beautiful Wealden countryside. A great day out for the whole family.

Why call it the Lavender Line?

There has been much speculation over the years as to the real reason why the railway was named the Lavender Line. For example the railway seems to produce a large amount of lavender growing in the wooded areas around the line. However, the real reason why it’s called the Lavender Line is because of the activities of a local business man A.E Lavender who had his coal merchant office located by the cattle dock at Isfield station. Although his business was based in the nearby village of Ringmer the closest railway station was Isfield and he therefore had his office situated at Isfield station which enabled coal delivers to be taken straight from the railway coal yard to nearby businesses. The unique coal office still remains at Isfield station to this day and now houses our model railway, along with a number of pieces of railway memorabilia of which would have been used at the station during the days of steam.
