Crowhurst railway station is on the main London - Tunbridge Wells - Hastings line in East Sussex in England, and serves Crowhurst. Train services are provided by Southeastern.

History[edit]

Although the section of the Hastings line through Crowhurst was completed in 1852, no station existed at this location until the South Eastern and Chatham Railway (SECR) built a branch line to Bexhill West in 1902.[1] Crowhurst served as a junction station, with Up and Down through platforms and a bay platform at the southern end of each until closure of the Bexhill West branch in 1964. Most of the station buildings have been demolished,[2] but the remains of the bay platforms are still visible and a small building survives on the Up side. The station is normally unstaffed.

Services[edit]

The typical off-peak service is one train per hour to London Charing Cross via Tunbridge Wells and one train per hour to Hastings.[3]
