It was this headline, forwarded by No 3 son, that intrigued.
North of the A27 is the vast campus of the University of Sussex.
The original campus was designed by Sir Basil Spence and began to appear in the early 60s. It is technically in the village of Falmer, next to its railway station, and accessed by car from the A27 road. It is situated close to the South Downs, which influenced Spence's design of the campus. The campus is self-contained with facilities and shops.
In the mid 2000s it was joined by the University of Brighton (formerly a Polytechnic) with one of its five campuses south of the A27.
In 2011 the stadium arrived. It is known at "The Amex" (Americam Exprtess sponsorship) and is home to Brighton and Hove Albion Footy Club.
Right next door to the stadium is Falmer Station on the "Coastway East" line from Brighton.
The beleaguered Southern provides today's (reduced!) service; but the station has changed very little since the 1960s ...
... and neither is there much difference between now and the early 1900s!

Oddly, First don't seem to recommend the TSY, possibly because the whole of their ludicrously expensive web site is busted. No, other sets of timetables are all there; maybe First simply don't trustb the TSY information.
