West Grinstead was a railway station on the Steyning Line which served the village of West Grinstead. It had a goods yard with a cattle loading bay and facilities for handling horse boxes. With the hunt kennels and national stud based in the area, the station saw substantial horse traffic.
The station closed as a result of the Beeching Axe in 1966 and now forms part of the Downs Link footpath. Although the main station buildings were demolished soon after closure, the station platforms have survived. The local parish council have erected a replica station sign in the vicinity, and an old railway signal has also been installed. A British Railways Mark 1 coach has also been placed on rails in the former goods yard.
