These pics of Richborough and Stonar were taken in 1950 - taken from 'Britain from the air' recently digitised archive. Some really excellent stuff downloaded on their site so far

The building to the top of the picture is the present day paper recycling depot, this building was at the end of Richborough new wharf,the buidings to the left are Richborough Hall, at that period a two storey building, my list has it down as a dinning hall, but the layout is different from the other dinning halls on site,[six in total]  The buildings to the right hand side of the picture are part of Robertson Camp, sometimes called saltpans, this area was set up for the repair of barges.

What was "Richborough Hall"?

thanks

Here's a link to Hansard with regard to the sale of the port: http://hansard.millbanksystems.com/lords/1925/jul/29/sandwich-port-and-haven-bill

Apparently the skeleton is to be clad and used to house the equipment for an electrical supply from Belgium.

It is all that remains of the former Richborough Power Station, built to burn Kent coal.

It is a long time since I heard the name 'Arthur G Wells'. He was a friend of my Dads. Nice man.

I am almost certain that there was an article by Arthur G Wells (who only died a few years back) in `Trains Ilustrated`, C-1958-61, about the story of the `St Anselm` loco.

This was mentioned in the 'Stonar Lake' thread, but it seems more appropriate to post it here as this is one of P.D.L.'s loco's that was inherited by the N.C.B. and worked in the port area.

'ST. ANSELM' Hudswell Clarke 0-6-0T [Works no.1343/18], formerly IW & D no.65. A newspaper clipping from 1954:

Lazyzee I  Think your pictures show the remains of the system that carried  part of the dredging equipment that was in use at that time, the train ferry berth was a bit further along, and very difficult to access today. A full plan of the site is on display in the RAF Manston history museum, as Manston and Port Richborough was all part of the same project.
Hi Doug, they are pictures of the same structure that is further down the thread which is labelled as the train ferry quay, this structure is directly behind pfizers social club/Ambrosettis yard, see below.

Nice pics Layzee, are you using HDR?
No these pictures aren't hdr,  I have just tonemapped them to bring up the detail.
