Higham Railway 1

Part of the ‘lost’ Count Zborowski home movie shot in the summer of 1924 by Sydney Bligh. This is an out-take from the film which was made in the style of Hollywood movies of the time. Count Zborowski is sitting on the left in the locomotive for which he had his own private mile-long 15″ track built around his Higham Estate, just outside Bridge. This was the precursor to the Romney Hythe and Dymchurch railway.

I am currently editing the Count Zborowski home movie, adding inter-titles to help convey a coherent narrative and piano music to suit the silent era period. I aim to screen this publicly once it’s finished (after only 94 years in the making).
