The Railway Museum was created in the 1980s, to capture the history of the Elham Valley Railway Line which ran through the picturesque Elham Valley between Canterbury and Folkestone, from 1884 to 1947.

The Countryside Centre is housed in a 290 year old barn, moved from land now lying beneath the Channel Tunnel terminal. It was moved and reconstructed at it’s current location, next to the Railway Museum, alongside part of the original embankment to the historic line and has now been renamed George’s Barn in honour of George Wright who had the vision and tenacity to coordinate the relocation of the barn to become what it is is today.

The Elham Valley Line Trust is a registered charitable trust run entirely by volunteers. Volunteers are always welcome to join our enthusiastic team, no matter how much time or support you can offer.

There are always things to do, maintaining the buildings, grounds and displays, helping to run our Tea Room, selling tickets or simply being around to chat to people about the historical artifacts on display.

Anyone interested in helping, can email, speak to any of the volunteers during a visit or leave a message for the Membership Officer on 01303 273014.
