Surviving concrete fence posts of the Sheppey Light Railway.
The Sheppey Light Railway can across the isle of sheppy from Queenborough to Leysdown. The railway closed in 1950s. A few parts of remain across the island. In a few places there are some 1900s railings and 1920s concrete fence posts. At one point there are a couple of fence posts right in the middle of a village green! (The only sign that there once used to be a railway there).
