Memories of the Bluebell Line
A 1956 visit to the sawmill at Sheffield Parkby Daniel Wilson.
With a friend interested in "pre-war England" I went for a trip on the "grudge service" provided by BR in 1956. He wanted to explore the sawmill at Sheffield Park (just like him to know there was even one there) so we bought returns from East Grinstead on a Saturday. I took a plate camera ! (bought in 1904 by an uncle killed in WW1).
