The Mid-Kent Line crosses the River Ravensbourne
The Mid-Kent Line crosses the River Ravensbourne
The Mid-Kent Line was opened by the South Eastern Railway on 1st January 1857 between Lewisham and Beckenham Junction. The railway was originally planned to carry traffic along the border of the counties of Kent and Surrey, and on to Westerham and Sevenoaks, but never got further than Hayes which is now in the London Borough of Bromley. The Mid-Kent Line is therefore somewhat confusing and the line is now more usually referred to as the Hayes Branch. This view looks up the line towards Ladywell station in the distance.
The bridge in the foreground is where the River Ravensbourne flows under the line. During 2007-8, a new channel was created in the northern section of Ladywell Fields (to the right of the line here and in the distance) so that the River Ravensbourne could run through the park as well as follow its normal course. Under the line here though is the original concrete channel with the river flowing left to right.
