Memories of Barnes Cray

Barnes Cray Level Crossing

I can remember passing this crossing many times as my father always pointed out that he fished in the adjacent River Cray years ago. This crossing carried a single track line from the Vickers site in Crayford to the Vitbe Flour works and other manufacturing establishments. I wonder if anybody has a photograph of this crossing?
