AERIAL VIEW OF TS BRIGHTON AT SPEED

A very smart and fast ship.

By Mick Cutler

Brighton (VI) and her French running mate Lisieux were two of the fastest ships on the Newhaven-Dieppe route, both capable of over 25 knots. Although not the official record holder for the fastest crossing, Brighton holds the honour of being the only vessel ever to make three round trips in a day.

A full-size print of this photo, and many others of our steamers, is to be found at Newhaven Museum.
