Ockley Station
Ockley Station
Ockley Station
Ockley railway station serves the villages of Ockley and Capel in Surrey, and is situated 1.4 miles from Ockley village and only half a mile west of the village of Capel. The station is 29 railway miles south of London Victoria station. Ockley is managed by Southern which also provides all the services.
It opened as Ockley & Capel on 1 May 1867 as part of the London Brighton & South Coast Railway extension to Horsham. Its situation next to Le Steeres of Jayes Park brickworks (closed c 1914) and nearby Phorpres Works (now Clockhouse Works) allowed for substantial brickwork traffic for many years. Milk traffic was also important until the early 1930s when this trade was lost to road transport.
Goods traffic declined slowly over the next thirty years ceasing finally in June 1962.
