Welcome to The Hobby Box, a family-run model blog created in memory of the now closed shop in the midway between Brighton and Tunbridge Wells.

The Hobby Box existed in Uckfield for over 35 years before closing in 2016.

The shop stocked items for many types of modelling from a tiny N gauge sheep to a ¼ scale RC aeroplane fighter with all sorts of things in between. The staff were known for actively seeking second-hand N, OO and O Gauge locomotives and rolling stock, part-exchange considered on new items. Although the shop is now closed, this family continues to promote the benefits of hobbies in all their iterations.

This site is not a shop, so we don’t trade online. However, we are here to help should you wish to find out more about what hobby might be right for you. Visit our ‘Say Hi’ page to get in touch with us.
