Level crossing at East Farleigh station
Level crossing at East Farleigh station
The Medway Valley Line was built in two stages by the South Eastern Railway. The first stage opened in 1844 was from Paddock Wood following the Medway Valley to Maidstone. In 1856 the line was extended up the Medway Valley to the North Kent Line at Strood (which had opened in 1847). East Farleigh station, seen here from the end of the Maidstone West and Strood bound platform, is situated on the first part to open in 1844. Like many Kent stations it has staggered platforms. The Paddock Wood bound platform can just be seen on the far side of the crossing on the other side of Farleigh Lane. The signal box controls the busy level crossing.
