The Crab and Winkle Way Panel

On the 18th March, 2014, the South Street WI completed a long-term project: installation of a panel on the Crab and Winkle Way.



The panel provides information about the history of the old Crab and Winkle railroad line and the steam train that connected Whitstable to nearby Canterbury in the early 1900s. Although the railway track is now gone, its route is now a well-travelled cycle path and footpath, and still joins the two towns.

The South Street WI was helped with funding by the Heritage Lottery Fund, Kent County Council, and numerous fund-raising activities within the WI.




Pictured on the right are South Street WI President Gill Rowe, who unveiled the panel, accompanied by John Cann, the local artist who did the artwork on the panel.




The unveiling was watched by, among others, members of the South Street WI, and representatives from the Whitstable Improvement Trust and the Crab and Winkle Way.
