The Hythe & Sandgate Branch Line and Tramway by Peter A. Harding. The Hythe and Sandgate branch, three miles in length, was one of the shortest lines constructed by South Eastern Railway. The aim was to create a new route to the continent with an extension through to Folkestone Harbour.
This book, the latest addition in the popular Peter Harding series, follows the tale of this branch line. Also included is the fascinating story of the tramway which proved popular with locals and tourists alike. Sadly the tramway closed in 1922.
