Tenterden’s Abandoned Railway.
The Kent & East Sussex Railway opened in 1900 as England’s first ‘light railway’, serving the rural communities of East Sussex and Kent. Closing to passengers in 1954, the line was saved and reopened by a charitable organisation in 1974. It now operates steam hauled and diesel observation trains on a 10.5 mile line from Bodiam Castle in East Sussex to the historic market town of Tenterden in west Kent.
Along comes another weekend which means more urbex with my partner and Urbex Devil with the plan to urbex something none of us had done before, off to Kent we go to find a abandoned train line hidden in the woods the first urbex of the day. With access being retentively easy we had an easy explore Evan meeting a few other urbexers along the way. This placed shocked me in how intact the 150 year old wooden style carriages where and the fact the controls altho be it very stiff still worked for the crane. The old wood has rotted away in places however one carriage was still strong enough to walk thru, i guess they don’t make things like they ust to. Pictures taken its now time to leave but not before meeting Mr what you doing, i call him this as its all it seemed he was able to say, after explain i was taking pictures his answer was what you doing.
