  THE OLD SWING BRIDGE
by whitecliff62
 
 

This is the old swing bridge in Folkestone harbour. The old steam trains used to chug down to the harbour to collect people from the cross channel paddle steamers, and this brilliant piece of engineering used to turn the steam trains around fof the journey home. Sadly wit the demise of the cross channel ferries from Folkestone this section of railway has not been used for years

Address: FOLKESTONE HARBOUR
