Victoria Pleasure Gardens (1897-1939). With the outbreak of WW1, the Gardens were immediately requisitioned by the military authorities for the billeting / training of troops. On November 18th 1914, soldiers of the 6th & 7th (City of London) Battalions, The London Regiment, took up occupancy of the town. When they left for the front they were replaced in May 1915 by 2nd/4th & 2nd/5th Battalions of the East Lancashire Regiment. The Gardens reopened again for business after the war. During WW2 the Gardens were requisitioned again by the military authorities. This was the 'death knell' of the Gardens as they never reopened again and in the 1950's it became the site for the Burgess Hill Industry.
