Bandon Halt was a station on the 1847 London, Brighton and South Coast Railway extension from West Croydon to Epsom. It was situated between Waddon and Wallington stations in what is now the London Borough of Sutton, and opened on 11 June 1906 and closed 7 June 1914.[1] It takes its name from the immediate area which is called Bandon Hill. It was located at grid reference TQ301644 and was accessed from Plough Lane, the platforms lying to the immediate west of the overbridge.[2]
