Hastings Line :: Shared Description

The Hastings Line links Hastings with Tunbridge Wells and Tonbridge, then onto London Charing Cross. The line was built by South East Railways (SER) and opened fully in 1853, having been constructed in phases. Tonbridge to Tunbridge Wells opened in 1846. Tunbridge Wells to Robertsbridge opened in 1851. Robertsbridge to Battle 1852 and Battle to St Leonards (Bo Peep Junction) 1853. The line was built very quickly (and not very well) and several of the tunnels need constant maintenance even today, several on them are single track.
