Geocache Description:

Crowhurst railway station is on the main London - Tunbridge Wells - Hastings line in East Sussex, and serves Crowhurst.

The section of the Hastings line through Crowhurst was constructed in 1852, but no station existed at this location. It wasn't until the South Eastern and Chatham Railway (SECR) built a branch line to Bexhill West in 1902 that a station was built here. 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, but the remains of the bay platforms are still visible and a small building survives on the Up side. The station is normally unstaffed.

To find the cache, you have to cross the rail bridge and walk for a short distance along a footpath. You do not need a ticket to cross the station. The cache is not on railway property - please don't search for the cache at the station itself.
