Details

HILDENBOROUGH STOCKS GREEN ROAD TQ 54 NE 5/210 Railway bridge at Stocks Green - II

Bridge carrying railway over the road. Circa 1868, part of the South Eastern line from New Cross to Tonbridge, authorised in 1862 and opened in phases, the Sevenoaks to Tonbridge section opened in 1868. Red brick laid in English bond. An unusual design. The bridge crosses the road obliquely and the single arch is made up of 5 skewed, staggered arches. Plain brick stringcourse and coping; brick parapet. Substantial buttresses. In the History of the Southern Railway (1963) the line is described as characterised by "several very considerable brick bridges; everything was to the standard expected for a new 'Main Line', designed to strike fear into the neighbouring L.C.D.R. by reason of the much faster schedules now possible between the new London termini and the channel ports".(p.299)
