East Farleigh Station
About East Farleigh
East Farleigh is a village around 2 miles from Maidstone and the station is alongside the river, the locks and a 14th century, grade 1 listed bridge across the river. Another listed building in the village is the 12th century St Mary’s church which is a short walk from the station.
The area around the riverside and locks is accessible via the riverside path and there is a pub, The Victory, adjacent to the station, along with another, The Bull, in walking distance opposite the church. An accessible path runs along the riverside to Maidstone.
We would like to thank "Rainham Rail Enthusiast" for allowing us to link his video of the station.
