Unknown location

This photo was taken in the late 1970's, probably 1978. It may be the Bromyard & Linton private railway. Can anyone confirm the location?

I am sure the view is taken at the Brockham Museum Association site at Brockham Quarry, Surrey.
I worked there in my teens (many years ago now) and remember the work that went on to cut the double door in the end wall of the existing building shown in the picture by inserting a pair of old rails as a lintel. All without the gable collapsing.
The Association could never get planning permission for public access to its museum due to the awkward access off the A25 road. The entire collection eventually moved to Amberley Chalk Pits Museum. As far as I know the building still stands at Brockham. If you need any further information I would be happy to dig out my old copies of Brockham News. all the best Dave B

Sorry to disagree with Dave, but l remember the Brockham Museum as well and l don\'t remember the site being as open as the picture shows. The site was by several old chalk quarries in the Betchworth area. They actually used the site for many tv and films the most famous being Doctor Who with Tom Baker as the Doctor and Blakes Seven for some reason! The picture does look familier and l am wondering if its the narrow gauge railway at Bedford?. Either its intriuging and hope someone out there can help.
