This 15 foot by 7 foot layout is situated on the bottom floor of the Bexhill Museum of Egerton Park, and will play a massive part in the Museums new Second World War Exhibition for the 80 year commemoration since the War started in 1939. The layout is the conception of Museum Patron Eddie Izzard who put it together in honour of his late father, Harold John M Izzard, who passed away in May 2018. Supported and designed by Eddie, the layout is being built by members of the Bexhill Model Railway Club amongst other volunteers.

Included, are many Bexhill Landmarks such as the station buildings, the De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill: Hospital, Townhall, Drill Hall and even Eddies childhood home in the Laburnham Cottages in Sidley, all are scratch built and are built by retired architect Bill Hill.
