The Tenterden Terrier, the award-winning members’ journal of  the Kent & East Sussex Railway, is published three times a year on the third Saturday of March, July and November.

It includes regular reports on the progress of the preserved Kent & East Sussex Railway, letters, book reviews, and feature articles about the preservation of the K&ESR and historical aspects of all the Colonel Stephens railways.

The Tenterden Terrier was launched in 1973, when it replaced the Farmer’s Line, which had been the publication of the then Kent & East Sussex Railway Preservation Society (the predecessor of the Tenterden Railway Company) since 1961. Philip Shaw edited the Tenterden Terrier for no less than 32 years from issue No. 4 (Summer 1974) to issue No. 100 (Summer 2006) and was then succeeded by Brian Janes, for three issues. The editor's seat is currently occupied by Nick Pallant.
