Wittersham Road is a railway station on the Kent and East Sussex Railway. It is located to the north-east of the level crossing on Maytham Road which links the Kentish villages of Rolvenden and Wittersham. Having served the area for over sixty years, the station closed with the line in 1961 and was later reopened in 1977 by the Kent and East Sussex Railway heritage organisation.
Wittersham Road was one of the original stations on the 19 km line opened by the Rother Valley Railway between Rolvenden and Robertsbridge in 1900.
The remote location of the station meant that there was no particular settlement for it to serve, the village of Wittersham being some 4.5 km away, a distance reflected in the decision to name the station "Wittersham Road". The station consisted of a single platform and two sidings on the Down side facing Tenterden.
