For 100 years the indomitable Hythe Pier train has ferried passengers to and from the ferry. In that time it has known conflict, royalty, tragedy and celebration, and has many a story to tell.

 

In this comprehensive book, with over 100 images, author and local historian Alan Titheridge delves into the history of this unique little train, exploring its origins, its challenges, and the multitude of people who have made their mark upon it. 

 

Recognised in the Guinness Book of Records as being the world’s oldest operating on a pier, our quirky little green train has been trundling back and forth along Hythe Pier for, as of 2022, a century.

 

When sold off as redundant plant by the War Office at the end of the First World War, who could have imagined it had a future twenty years into the 21st Century when its clickety-clack sound, an intrinsic part of everyday life in the village, is the “Heartbeat of Hythe”.
