LONDON, TILBURY AND SOUTHEND RAILWAY

Arms of London, Tilbury and Southend Railway

Official blazon

Origin/meaning

The company dates from 1852 and was taken over by the Midland Railway in 1912. The arms show Tilbury Fort, originally a blockhouse built by Henry VIII for the defence of the Thames with the arms of London, Essex and Kent (as it also operated ferries between Tilbury and Gravesend).
