Two unexpected things cropped up whilst I was planning today’s trip to Framfield and Blackboys.
Firstly, I was going to get the train to Uckfield (and walk or get the bus) but when I checked the train times online I found there was engineering work this weekend and I would have to catch a replacement bus.
Normally this would be the end of it and I would find somewhere else to go, but because of the route and starting point of the replacement buses it was actually quicker taking the replacement bus (by 44 minutes).
This must be the only time that a rail replacement bus service has actually been quicker than the normal rail service!
The second unexpected thing happened when I googled ‘framfield monumental inscriptions’, and this blog came top of the list! I was surprised to say the least, but I guess I shouldn’t have been, it is probably not a very common search term and I am probably the only one writing about them.
