West Street Pier, Gravesend
West Street Pier, Gravesend
The Gravesend West Line branched off the Swanley to Chatham line at Fawkham Junction and continued to Gravesend where the railway company constructed a pier to connect trains with steamers. The line opened in 1886 and closed to passenger services in 1953, remaining open to freight until 1968. The majority of Gravesend West station was demolished in 1991, with the remaining section of viaduct and bridge over West Street going in September 2006. This left the pier in glorious isolation. It is here viewed from the riverside walkway by Baltic Wharf. For more information on the Gravesend West Line see LinkExternal link and LinkExternal link The car park for Wickes in Stuart Road is now on the site of Gravesend West station.
