View looking north from Station Road bridge towards the wagon tippler, with the APCM coal depot on the left and disused tracks running either side of a mound indicating where the former station platform once stood. The two chimneys of APCM’s Northfleet New Works, eventual destination for most of the coal handled at Southfleet, can just be seen in the distance. © David Morgan
