Station opening and development
The arrival of the station accelerated residential development in the area and some houses were constructed by the railway contractor to the west of the station. Workshops constructed by the contractor survived as industrial units until their demolition after 1953. In addition to passengers, the station's main traffic was animals, notably horses, for the Wednesday cattle market in "Market Field".
The single-track line was doubled by 1879.
The station closed as a result of the Beeching Axe in 1966 and was demolished soon after closure. The site is now occupied by the new alignment of the A283 Steyning-by-pass. Only the old warehouse building (view building), long since converted into townhouses remains of the station today aside from the name "Station Road".
