Coaching-3

This talk will tell the story of the roads that carried stage coach traffic between London and Brighton from the mid -18th century to the end of the coaching era in the 1840s. They had to cross the sands, clays and chalk lands which all provided their own challenges. New techniques of road construction and coach building greatly improved the coach travellers’ experience. The story is, however, far more than a description of the physical landscape and coach construction. It is also about the coachmen themselves, and accidents, robberies, ghosts and gallows, plus many other incidents that bring the coaching age to life.—The Keep
