Brockley Lane railway station in London opened in 1872 on the London, Chatham and Dover Railway Greenwich Park branch. It closed to passenger traffic in 1917 with the branch, but remained open for goods until 1970.[1]

It is adjacent to Brockley railway station, at a lower level on the London Bridge to Norwood Junction line crossing under the Greenwich Park branch. The line through Brockley Lane re-opened to passengers in 1935 for trains from Dartford to Victoria via a new link into Lewisham, but there has been no official suggestion that it might re-open as an interchange station. The entrance to the station was in use as a secondhand/bric-a-brac shop until it was destroyed by fire in 2004. Short sections of platforms are still visible at the lineside.
