5/210 Railway bridge at Stocks Green
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)
