Introduction to Video


Digital Slide & Short Film Presentations

Welcome to the all-new Lashbrooks Entertainment Video Section. It is a entertainment video website with a difference.

Here you will find not only a special selection of themed photographs brought together and combined to produce a slide presentation, but also specialist films taken by amateurs on early cine cameras before the advent of video. Some are shown in their original form, others are first broken down into their original sequences and then re-edited.

The first presentation is a slide show of Uckfield's Temporary Station that was built on the original Down Line in order that East Sussex County Council could permanently close the level crossing to allow unhindered road use. It was done on a shoestring, so much so that only a portacabin was provided as a ticket office. This lasted until it was condemmed as a result of rat infestation. The replacement portacabin was installed in a different location fronting the main road which was very noisy, so much so that it was difficult at times to hear what the booking clerk was saying to you.

Finally, money was found to provide a brand new modular building of a design that could be moved to a new location when the station moves back to its original site as part of extending the line from Uckfield to Brighton as part of the BML2 Project.

We hope you like the presentations, which can be viewed below on-line
