Two Victorian-era train carriages.

Friday 06 October 2017

Behind the facade of this rather ordinary-looking bungalow lurks a surprise - the heart of this house is formed of two Victorian-era train carriages. The 1,200sq ft, three-bedroom house near Bognor Regis, West Sussex, was built around a pair of Midland Railway carriages dating from 1885, which have been restored to their former glory. The house is in Pagham, which is famous the world over for the number of houses created from former train carriages after the First World War. They were originally used by wealthy people as sturdy and comfortable beachfront homes, but a shortage of housing for returning soldiers and a demand for cheap holiday homes meant they were soon turned over to ordinary people. In the Thirties alone, more than 300 bungalows were created from pairs of carriages.
