Wanborough Railway Station is Situated in Flexford in Surrey, and serves the villages of Normandy to the north and Wanborough to the south. The station is served by South West Trains who manage the station and by First Great Western. It is on the Ascot to Guildford line and the North Downs Line.
Wanborough Station owes its existence to the efforts of Sir Algernon West, then the tenant at Wanborough Manor He was a close friend of Mr W E Gladstone and also served as his private secretary when he was Prime Minister. Mr Gladstone and his political colleagues often met at the Manor where he himself frequently stayed, and Sir Algernon thought that travelling by rail to a station here would be more convenient for his visitors than continuing to negotiate the steep hill of the Hogs Back from Guildford with coach and horses.
