Lydd Town

Until the late 1990s, the layout here still retained a passing loop, but being little used, it was removed to leave just a single-track. © David Glasspool

A close-up view of the station building reveals the structure to be in seemingly solid condition. The slate roofing is complete, the brickwork on the nearside has been repaired, and the canopy is still in existence, albeit with obvious gaps. The lightly used nature of this freight dedicated line ensures that the rails always have a top layer of rust. © David Glasspool

Moving westwards from the previous views, the goods yard site is revealed. The shed still stands prominent on the right, complete with slate roof. A track never passed through this structure, hence its comparatively small width. In this view, it is evident that the station building also retains its entrance canopy. With the whole site being put on the market by the British Rail Board (Residual), these historic buildings could be razed to the ground. © David Glasspool
