hi all this was my first group explore, with Wevsky, Stealth2k12, Space Invader, Obscurity. nice little tunnel and picked up some really good tips from them. same about all the fog in and around made it quite hard to get some descent pics but we tired anyway :rolleyes:. So here is the history from subbrit, The East Kent Light Railway, opened in 1911, was projected primarily to serve the freight needs of the Kent coalfield, although subsequently passengers were also conveyed between Shepherdswell on the London, Chatham & Dover Railway’s Canterbury to Dover main line, to a junction at Eastry, from whence ran lines to Richborough Port and Canterbury Road (some nine kilometres short of Canterbury.) A number of collieries (such as Wingham at TR 2557 and Woodnesborough at TR 2956), partially developed in the district, failed before production commenced, although that at Tilmanstone (TR 2850) sent coal to the docks at Dover via the EKLR and the main line, at least until the mine short-circuited this route when it constructed an independent overhead conveyor system direct from the pit head to the Eastern Docks (via its own twin tunnels through the chalk cliffs the bricked-up entrances to which can be seen from the ferry terminal.).
