Kearsney (Kent) Railway Station

Facts and Figures

Kearsney railway station serves Kearsney in Kent. It is served by Southeastern. The booking office in the station building on the Dover-bound platform is open only for very limited hours on Mondays to Fridays mornings but a Permit To Travel ticket machine (also on the Dover-bound platform) caters for out-of-hours ticketing. The station and the line it serves were built by the London, Chatham and Dover Railway as the station for Temple Ewell and the parish of River. The community of Kearsney grew around the Railway Bell Hotel which was on the main Dover to London road. The station had a small goods siding, and a siding for passenger trains. The next stop towards the coast was Dover, and there was also a loop that took the railway directly onto the Kent Coast Line towards Margate, bypassing Dover. In the early days of the railway this meant trains did not always have to make the steep climb out of Dover. In practice the loop was little used for passenger trains, mainly used by freight. Latterly the line was used by coal trains to Richborough power station.
