Tenterden Town Station
Tenterden Town Station
Tenterden Town station is the northern terminus of the Kent & East Sussex Railway which runs to Bodiam. The line opened in 1900 between Robertsbridge on the South Eastern & Chatham Railway and Rolvenden(then called Tenterden) as the Rother Valley Railway. The line was extended to Tenterden Town in 1903 and onwards to Headcorn Junction (also on the SE&CR) in 1905. It retained a precarious independence from its big neighbour (despite becoming bankrupt in 1931) until nationalisation brought it into the British Railways fold in 1948. Passenger trains were withdrawn in 1954 and the last goods train ran in 1961. A scheme to reopen the line by volunteers nearly foundered when the Ministry of Transport objected to the continued use of a level crossing over the main A21 Hastings road, but a shorter length of the line was finally saved.
