Railway foot crossing
Railway foot crossing
The construction of the London, Tilbury & Southend Railway was authorised by Parliament on 17th June 1852 and extended in stages. The section here from Horndon to Leigh-on-Sea opened on 1st July 1855. The line reached Southend on 1st March 1856 and finally to Shoeburyness in 1884.

This foot crossing is just south of Hadleigh Castle. Although it looks like it has been available for vehicles as well, the roadway across has been removed recently. A Fenchurch Street bound train is about to pass over the crossing.
