Norbury station
Norbury station
The Balham Hill & East Croydon line was constructed by the London Brighton & South Coast Railway as a short-cut on the Brighton Main Line to Victoria, avoiding Crystal Palace and Norwood Junction. The line was opened on 1st December 1862, but Norbury station was not opened until January 1878, as the surrounding area was quite rural. The station was rebuilt in 1903 when the lines were quadrupled. A nature area has been created on the middle platform as can be seen here. The fast lines are on the far side of the middle platform.
