Around Isfield Station

The Cattle Dock Crane

As at most stations in the countryside, the cattle dock was one of the key parts of the station. The dock provided the only real means of loading and off loading goods such as cattle, parcels and coal arriving to or departing from the station.

Our original LBSCR dock crane can be seen next to our model railway office and shows how the dock would have looked during the railway’s heyday.
