In this new programme, historian Rob Bell explores some of the lost landscapes surrounding the forgotten railway lines of Britain’s gorgeous countryside. 

In this episode, Rob checks out a railway line in rural Kent that became extremely prominent during the world wars, The Elham Valley Railway, which once connected Folkestone to Canterbury.
