The Winchelsea Tramway is inspired by the Rye & Camber Tramway. The Winchelsea Tramway runs just under 4,000 yards from Winchelsea Junction to Winchelsea Beach passing the station at Winchelsea Strand Gate and five halts. Strand Gate station is 100 foot below the town of Winchelsea. Despite its name the tramway largely runs on its own flat [varying between 7’ and 13’ above sea level] right of way. The Tramway’s connection to the ‘mainline’ allows it to handle parcels and goods traffic. The main source of goods traffic on the tramway is the block works at Strand Gate, the block works uses aggregates from pits north-east of Winchelsea Beach.
