Tonbridge Rail Bridge

Practical head of navigation for narrow boats
 
Tonbridge rail bridge approx half mile upstream of the town bridge. You can wind a full length boat before the bridge, but the northern approach is very narrow.

The southern approach has a headroom limit of around 5ft, but is wide. The northern approach has headroom of around 5ft 6inches but is very narrow. Good depth though.

 
Tonbridge Rail Bridge is a major waterways place at the end of the River Medway (Non-tidal section); past Tonbridge Northern Route Junction (Junction with the northern route from Tonbridge) (a few yards to the east).

User contributed information about Tonbridge Rail Bridge
I took the northernmost branch of the river upstream of Tonbridge town bridge as there was just insufficient headroom on the wider branch, and only just sufficient headroom on the northern branch. It was very narrow with overhanging branches but depth was good. I winded where the main channel was rejoined just below the rail bridge.
