In Sussex, on the edge of Lewes by the River Ouse, are more than twenty acres of land, used for over fifty years as rail yards. When they were dismantled, they became a wasteland. After twenty-five years of benign neglect, the land was saved from development by a group of local residents. Since then, it has become a prized nature reserve around which several social and ecological projects gravitate. These, and the web of relations between them, constitute the Railway Land Project.
