Amberley railway station is a railway station in West Sussex, England. It serves the village of Amberley, about half a mile away, and was opened by the London, Brighton and South Coast Railway. The Amberley Working Museum – a museum of industry – is accessed from the former station goods yard.

It is 54 miles 62 chains (88.2 km) down the line from London Bridge via Redhill on the Arun Valley Line.

History[edit]

Opened by the London, Brighton and South Coast Railway, it became part of the Southern Railway during the Grouping of 1923. The station then passed on to the Southern Region of British Railways on nationalisation in 1948.

When Sectorisation was introduced in the 1980s, the station was served by Network SouthEast until the Privatisation of British Railways.

The now closed signalbox is situated on Platform 2, under the station canopy.

Services[edit]

There is an hourly service in each direction, northbound to London Victoria and southbound to Bognor Regis.

All trains are operated by Southern using Class 377 EMUs.
