Polegate station is in East Sussex, on the East Coastway Line. Rail first arrived in the town in 1846, and the present station, built in 1986, rests some 400 yards to the west of the original structure. The site of the 19th century goods yard is now a shopping precinct just to the north, and another former station building is now a restaurant called - appropriately enough - The Old Polegate Station. Today, the village serves as a suburb to the town of Eastbourne. History buffs will want to take in the Otham Priory ruins - lying to the north, they are all that remains of an abbey built in 1175. You can reach the site via the popular Cuckoo Trail, which can be picked up from the station. It weaves a delightful path through the East Sussex countryside to the market town of Heathfield. Another highlight is the 1817 Polegate Windmill, about half a mile south of the station.
