Snargate Crossing; Grove Lane Crossing; Bowdell Crossing; and King Street Crossing
The total number of crossings on this branch is listed in some reference works as 14, but this is not really an accurate reflection of the number of crossing points as agricultural facilities and foot crossings also have to be considered. Some of the road crossings no longer have any value except to adjacent properties. I have a list of 50 crossing points that existed on the current stretch of the line, comprising 14 operational road crossings; 5 current public footpaths; 17 operational accommodation crossings (private agricultural facilities); and 14 accommodation crossings and foot crossings that have closed and are no longer used. Obviously the list changes and it was last updated in March 2015.
The branch actually runs south east from Appledore. The convention adopted in these collections is that Appledore is north, Dungeness is south, the New Romney side of the branch is east, and the Lydd side of the branch is west.
