Grain Refinery


8th May 2004

View north from "B" Gate Level Crossing. If you look along the right hand track it can be seen to pass through a gap in the fence: this is the boundary between BP track and DB Shenker (formerly EWS) track. Just beyond the fence the line splits into two where it used to run either side of the Grain Station island platform. The two tracks to the left of the fence are the last remains of the BP Refinery Exchange Sidings which once occupied the adjacent flat area. Caption: David Morgan; Photograph © David Glasspool

This is ''B'' Gate Level Crossing which now gives road access to Thamesport. However, as the name suggests, it once formed one of several gates giving access to the BP Refinery. Caption: David Morgan; Photograph © David Glasspool

The view from 8th May 2004 is at first deceptive, for it seems that this double-track line (of which the left-hand track appears to only see regular use), heads towards a power station. However, beyond the gate in the distance is a gravel yard which, like the complex at Cliffe, provides a steady flow of daily traffic. © David Glasspool
