Former United Fertilizer Company Ltd warehouse, Chambers Wharf
Former United Fertilizer Company Ltd warehouse, Chambers Wharf
At one time this was at the end of the Faversham Quay Railway, that branched off from the main railway line just to the east of Faversham railway station. It was a freight only line that opened in April 1860 and closed in 1964. Today, it is known as Oyster Bay House. This is a grade II listed building that was built around 1843. It was originally used for storing hops prior to them being transported to London by barge, after which it was used by the United Fertilizer Company Ltd and the original signage can still be seen on both sides of the building. In the early 1990s, it was restored to provide accommodation over four floors with the ground floor being used as an office and the upper floors as living accommodation. It seems fitting that there is a collection of old railway wagons nearby.
