Petts Wood: South Eastern Main Line (1)
Petts Wood: South Eastern Main Line (1)
Although this railway now forms the South Eastern Main Line, this particular section was a latecomer, only being constructed by the South Eastern Railway and opening in 1868. Petts Wood station, whose platforms are visible in the distance, was even later, only being built in 1928. This is the view from the footbridge on the path connecting Beaumont Road and Towncourt Lane. The footbridge predates the surrounding housing development by many years and was already in place by the time that the Ordnance Survey's map of 1909 was published.
