945/0/10015 Goods shed at Appledore Railway Station
Railway goods shed. 1851 for the South Eastern Railway. Red brick with Welsh slate roof. Three bays. Designed as a threshing barn with central double cart doors in a small porch and an arched lancet window in a large sunk panel on either side. There is an elliptically headed doorway in either gable for through truck running. The unusual feature of this goods shed is the long rear wall, which supports a canopy for the platform along its whole length. This is supported on four timber posts and has a pierced and fretted valance. This unusual feature was probably added to the shed in the late C19.
Interior: It is reported that it still retains its original crane.
History: Appledore station was opened in 1851. It is on the Hastings and Ashford line of the South Eastern Railway and all the stations were designed by William Tress. At Appledore the original building is almost unaltered. It opened as a single-track line with single sided stations, but was later doubled. It became a junction with the line to Dungeness in 1881 and has once again been singled since 1979. The goods shed was closed in 1963.
