Geocache Description:


Malden Manor railway station, in the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames in South_London is one of the stations on the Chessington Branch Line , part of the London suburban network of  South Western Railway (train operating company) and is in Travelcard Zone 4. It is 11 miles 5 chains (17.8 km) down the line from London Waterloo station.

The area was originally known as Old Malden It was the Southern Railway’s naming of the station that prompted locals to start referring to the neighbourhood as Malden Manor. The railway company was fond of mock-Tudor names and had intended to call other stations on the line Chessington Court and Chessington Grange before settling for the more prosaic North and South affixes.

Like all others on the branch, the station is built in the concrete style of the 1930s it was designed by James Robb Scott and opened on 29 May 1938. South-west of the station is a three-span, 140 ft (42m) viaduct over the Hogsmill River, a tributary of the River Thames.

Both platforms were extended to take ten-coach trains in 2014.
