The level crossing at Appledore station
The level crossing at Appledore station
The line between Ashford and Hastings was part of an original proposal by a company named the Brighton Lewes & Hastings Railway to extend its coast route to Hastings. The South Eastern Railway eventually built the line, and the line was opened on 13th February 1851. Appledore station also opened on 13th February 1851.

The station's official name is Appledore (Kent), although the other Appledore station in Devon closed in 1917. Most locals, though, know it as just 'Appledore'. The station is actually two miles from the village of Appledore.

This photograph shows the B2080 crossing the line next to the station. The former crossing keeper's residence is beyond. This was a very wet and miserable morning and it did not stop raining until late afternoon. The next station in this direction is Ham Street.
