the end of the Whitecliffs Branch


As those who have our books know, this Canterbury branch left the Midland Line at Darfield and headed southwest for approximately 18 km, at one time considered as the first stage for the route of the Midland Line itself.  This undated pic shows the terminus. For more, see our books and the post about Hawkins.

Thanks for posting that fantastic photograph. I live right where that train is and the platform can still be seen in our garden. The station itself is now parked on the common in Whitecliffs.

Do you have any other photographs of the railway through Whitecliffs and South Malvern?

Not many photos seem to have been taken on that line. We'll have a search for you.
