Tonbridge Station Did you know that Tonbridge Station was one of 200 'stopping stations' where wounded and sick men and women were received for onward transfer to local hospital by car and ambulance? Where might they have been taken?

This area has changed in the last 80 to 90 years - this is the view in 2009 when the sidings have changed to Car Parks and the allotmants are part of a sub station.

One thing that has changed (and there are several others) is that the station platform awning no longer carries the inscription TONBRIDGE. Such identification was provided by the Southern Railway in an age when early aviators used to follow railway lines to reach their destination.
