Guided Walk – A Rich Seam – A Snap Tin and Winter Sunshine Walk
Walk through what was the pit yard visiting remains of the East Kent Light Railway and abandoned Elvington Halt platform on the way.
A Rich Seam – A Snap Tins and Winter Sunshine Walk
Based on Walk 8 of ‘A Rich Seam’ the walk takes you through our industrial past following the route the miners took to Tilmanstone Colliery. On to Tilmanstone and Dane Court once home to the Rice family and then to Thornton Farm, returning along the Downs to the Community Centre for a cup of tea.
Free entry to Elvington and Eythorne Heritage Centre with its large collection and display of local mining memorabilia and much more. No drink or food upstairs in the Heritage Centre please. In case of inclement weather, the centre will still be open for you to visit.
