Site of Yonsea Farm
Yonsea Farm sat on this land from left to centre of the photograph. It was removed in 1997 to make way for the construction of the new High Speed railway. Some of the buildings were been reconstructed at the Rare Breeds Centre in Woodchurch including TQ9534 : Oast House at Yonsea Farm, Rare Breeds Centre, Woodchurch, Kent

Saved from the new high speed channel tunnel rail link and moved completely from its location near Hothfield (at TQ98624489) to the new site adjacent the rare breeds centre.

Still Grade II listed (still listed at old location)

High Speed 1

High Speed 1 (originally called The Channel Tunnel Rail Link or CTRL), is a 69-mile stretch of railway linking the Channel Tunnel and St Pancras station in London. Built at a cost of 5.2 billion, the line was opened on 14th November 2007, cutting Eurostar journey times by 40 minutes, compared with the previous route which was shared with local trains, restricting the speed severely. Trains travel at speeds up to 140mph on the high speed line.

In June 2010 the government put the line up for sale for 1.5 billion.
