Hi guys,

Probably a bit of an unusual request this one, but my local sources have thrown up nothing on this one, and although I have plenty of material on the branch there is one thing I can't actually find. That one thing is a photo of the bridge that used to cross the A256 at Haine. Any help will be gratefully received.

For those that are interested the Westwood Cross shopping complex on the Margate/Ramsgate/Broadstairs border is actually built on the approaches to one side.

Regards

No - That was at Star Lane, about 100yards on the Margate side.

Indeed it was - I vaguely remember it being demolished,probably about 1970.

Thanks for the link Poliss, but as Brian said it is unfortunately the wrong bridge. Oddly enough the one I am trying to get a photo of is the only bridge (over or under) on the branch that has completely disappeared, not bad when you consider that the line was closed in July 1926.

The Nash Lane bridge is apparently of a similar design but the cutting was deeper.

Don't forget that the track was still in use up to the bridge in the picture as the headshunt for the goods yard up untill AFAIR the late 60's - now the Tivoli Road Industrial Estate (goods shed & some infrastructure still visible)
