Sheppey Light Railway Greenway


A Brief History

For 15 years or more, creating a safe route for walking and cycling across the Isle of Sheppey has been a rather illusive goal. 

The course of the Sheppey Light Railway would have been ideal but, having closed in December 1950, is largely lost.

Extensive new house building on the island further encroaches on land available for a Greenway.

The benefit for communities across Sheppey - for leisure, physical and mental well-being, safe walking and cycling, tourism - are self evident. 

So there is everything to play for!
