LONDON, CHATHAM AND DOVER RAILWAY

Arms of London, Chatham and Dover Railway

Official blazon

Origin/meaning

The company was created in 1859 as an amalgamation of various smaller companies. The shields are the White Horse of Kent, London, Rochester and to right Dover, not from the Borough’s seal but from the arms of Robert de Hathbrand, one time abbot of St Martin’s Priory, Dover, who bore sable the cross and leopards’ heads argent. The LCDR changed the tinctures to red and gold, presumably for artistic reasons.
