This was the original station for Sheerness, but as the station was located some half a mile from the town centre the station life was short-lived. A half mile extension was made to a more convenient site for passengers with the opening of Sheerness-on-Sea Station on 1st June 1883. This station was then renamed Sheerness Dockyard, and service continued to both stations. Trains were required to reverse along the extension from here to Sheerness-On-Sea.
