The site of Tollesbury Pier railway station
The site of Tollesbury Pier railway station
In 1907 the Kelvedon & Tollesbury Light Railway was extended to a new station at the landward end of a pier on Tollesbury Wick Marshes. The station consisted of an old railway carriage body and a small brick building. It lasted no more than 14 years before being abandoned. The development which it was hoped would follow the railway never happened and the marsh, still completely remote, is now a nature reserve (see LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) for details). The tower seen in the far distance in the photo is a World War II lookout tower.
