Addiscombe Station's Last Hope
Campaigners fighting to save Addiscombe station from the bulldozers are racing against time this week to get the site listed with English Heritage. This more urgent than ever as a new detailed planning application for residential development looms.
The campaigners would like to turn the 136 year old station into a the only UK railway museum. Andrew Pelling a Tory Councillor and member of the Greater London Authority, has joined forces with the South Eastern and Chatham Railway Preservation Society, and the local Residents Association to persuade English Heritage of the site unique cultural interest.
With planning consent all but confirmed and the land almost sold the task they face is ambitious.
