    Burgess Hill – 7 Quirky Facts

    1. End of the World!
      Due to thick fog that would often descend there (and once caused a fatal train accident), the area around Wivelsfield Station became known locally as World’s End.
    2. East Meets West
      Burgess hill was once officially in East Sussex but left to become part of West Sussex in 1974 (“It doesn’t call, it doesn’t write…”). However, the town now sits on the East/West Sussex border so some streets are still within the jurisdiction of East Sussex… Fight!
    3. Name Blame
      The town owes its name to the Burgeys family. In Elizabethan times a small settlement had built up around the home of the land-owning Burgeys. It is thought ‘Hill’ relates to the one where the train station stands. The name Burgeys owes its routes to the French word ‘bourgeois’ which actually means “the inhabitant of a borough”. How very bourgeois!
    4. Another Brick In The Wall
      The land under and around Burgess Hill has a high clay content, making it perfect for making bricks, an industry that began locally in the 16th century. In 1870 digging for brickworks unearthed an axe head dating back to between 2,000 and 4,000 BC.
    5. Gone Roman
      The route of a Roman road runs directly through the centre of Burgess Hill. Traces were first found during and recorded in 1779, and again in 1996 during building works in the town centre which uncovered Roman pottery and evidence of a settlement dating back to the 1st – 4th century AD.
    6. Life is a Rollercoaster
      Victoria Pleasure Gardens were once home to one of the earliest types of rollercoaster, known as a ‘switchback’.
    7. Frozen
      A resident by the name of Mr Street became a local safety standard. In the Victorian era the Pleasure Garden’s lake would often freeze over, weighing 23 stone, Mr Street would step onto the ice, if he didn’t fall through it was deemed safe enough for skating. We’re not sure what they would have done had he fallen in.
