Wingham (Canterbury Road) railway station was a terminus on the East Kent Light Railway. It opened in 1925 (named Wingham) and the last passenger train ran on 30 October 1948. There was a siding to the south of the road, and carriages were usually run into the station under gravity.. Occasional freight/parcel trains ran until 1950 but the station was not officially closed until 1951.
After closure the cutting containing the station was infilled and covered with a field of crops. The site of the sidings are now occupied by a tea shop adjacent to which is a short section of undisturbed trackbed.
