Berwick railway station is located in Berwick, East Sussex, England. Berwick village is located nearby to the south of the A27 road.

The station is on the East Coastway Line, 57 miles 47 chains (92.7 km) from London Bridge, and train services are provided by Southern.


The station was opened by the London and Brighton Railway on 27 June 1846[1] and extended in 1890; the neighbouring station cottages were built in 1846 and 1892. An English Heritage report called Berwick 'in all one of the most complete wayside country station ensembles.'[2]

Signal box[edit]

The signal box was a Saxby & Farmer Type 5 box, erected in 1879 and retained its original lever frame and its semaphore signalling. Following an upgrade by Network Rail, the signal box closed in February 2015 with the area controlled from Sussex Regional Operations Centre at Three Bridges.[3]
