Elham Valley Railway

The Elham Valley Railway is a disused and dismantled railway line that runs through the Elham Valley connecting Folkestone and Canterbury in East Kent. It was operational from 1887 to 1947. Unable to compete with the roads the Southern Railway closed the whole Elham Valley line on the 16 June 1947, despite local protest. Lifting of the line occurred in 1950-54. But most of the country route still exists.
