Paul Naylor Year: 1960 Villages: HandcrossStagecoach arriving in Handcross
The “ Red Rover” stagecoach is seen here arriving in Handcross on its return journey on the London to Brighton run. Several such special trips were undertaken during the 20th century although the practical use of the stagecoach had long disappeared firstly due to the railways, followed by the advent of motor transport.
The Large version shows the coach parked outside the Red Lion.
