Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Leysdown is a disused railway station in Leysdown-on-Sea. It opened in 1901 and closed in 1950. There are no substantial remains of the station. Leysdown-on-Sea is a coastal village on the east side of the Isle of Sheppey in the Borough of Swale in Kent, England. It was noted in the Domesday book as being called Legesdun and the name is thought to be derived from the Saxon words "Leswe" and "Dun." A very small hamlet up to late Victorian times, it was developed a little after the arrival of the Sheppey Light Railway in 1903, though grand plans for the establishment of a large resort with hotels never materialised. The railway was closed in the 1950s.
