These photos were taken in 2007 (I think). The first shows the site of the goods yard at Wingham Canterbury Road - the station itself was directly across the road in the field to the left of the photo (nothing remains of the station) - and is the car park of the farm shop on the site. The farm shop was called The Goods Yard Farm Shop or The Station Farm Shop, something like that then but it has now been renamed as Wingham Farm Shop. Sad really, as the line fades further from memory.



The second shows the slight embankment looking towards Wingham Town. Apart from this and another slight embankment near the site of Wingham Town station I don't think there's any other remains visible on the ground of the Wingham branch.

Another small section of the EKR: The Eythorne to Tilmanstone Colliery branch, gradually being reclaimed by nature.

North Bank crossing at Shepherdswell - old gates, rails in the road - but still used by a preservation line.
