Hythe and Sandgate Railway :: Shared Description
The Sandgate branch was a three mile long railway branch line that ran from Sandling railway station in Kent on the South Eastern Main Line
to Hythe and Sandgate railway stations. It opened in 1874 and closed completely in 1951.
Almost the entire route from Sandling to Hythe remains intact (but with track lifted) including cuttings and embankments (though not bridges). However, a key obstacle to an enthusiasts group considering re-opening the line in the 1980s was the fact that the Saltwood Woods tunnel, and part of its cutting to the south of the tunnel, have been partially infilled with refuse.
