A platforms only station access from a footpath from Hughenden Road.
The Marshlink Line
This line runs between Hastings and Ashford.The South Eastern Railway built the line, it opened on 13 February 1851. Recommended for closure by Dr. Beeching in 1963, the route has survived various attempts to axe services completely, and stations remained unmodernised and gas-lit well into the 1970s. Services for certain stations on the line have now been reduced to an absolute minimum.
The line was single tracked between Appledore and Ore 1 October 1979, leaving a passing loop at Rye. Several stations have staggered platforms: passengers cross the line from the end of one platform to the end of the other, thus avoiding a footbridge.
The line is not electrified, with the exception of Hastings to Ore. This small section was electrified to provide for carriage sidings (there was no space at Hastings) as part of the "East Coastway" electrification of July 1935.
The line has an active rail users group called "The Marsh Link Action Group". Website LinkExternal link
