TQ7532 : The old railway station, Hawkhurst

taken 14 years ago, near to Gill's Green, Kent, Great Britain

The old railway station, Hawkhurst
The old railway station, Hawkhurst
Hawkhurst station was situated at the end of a long branch line from Paddock Wood on the Tonbridge to Ashford main line. Unfortunately, as with most other stations on the branch, Hawkhurst station was a long way from the village after which it was named.
The station closed in 1961. The main building was demolished, but the goods shed, signalbox (both seen here), platform and engine shed have all survived into light industrial use. The survival of the engine shed is somewhat surprising since its original use ended in 1931.
