Elham Valley Way twix North Lyminge & Elham
Along the Elham Valley Way, you
can see many features of the disused
railway line which connected
Folkestone to Canterbury.
Construction began in 1884. The line was operational between
1887 and 1947, and
during the Wold Wars was taken
over by the army. During WW2 it
was home to a huge railway gun
which could fire 1.4 ton shells 12
miles.
After the war, the road network
overtook the railway and passenger
numbers fell and the railway
was closed forever. The Way here
follows both the Nailbourne stream and the ploughed-over railway line.
