Kettleness

Our image shows a BR Standard locomotive, number 77012, standing at Kettleness Station, pre 1959. Another station which has found a new lease of life – as a Scout Activity Centre – the coast line being closed in 1958 some 5 years before Dr Beeching. Usage was only heavy in the summer, whilst the tunnels and bridges were expensive to maintain.

    That station brings back memories for me of when I was in the Cubs and Scouts. Used to go down there quite often for camps initially and then for maintenance more latterly.
