Crouch Valley Line :: Shared Description

The Crouch Valley Line, originally know as the Southminster Branch, was built by the Great Eastern Railway and opened in 1889.

It runs between Wickford and Southminster, with occasional trains between Southminster and London Liverpool Street.

At one time there was a connecting line between Woodham Ferrers* and Maldon, but this was closed in the 1950's.

The line was electrified in 1986.

*Woodham Ferrers station was renamed South Woodham Ferrers in 2007.
