Box Hill & Westhumble Station
Box Hill & Westhumble Station
The Leatherhead-Dorking line passes through the village of Westhumble; Box Hill is further to the south-east. The line was built by the London, Brighton & South Coast Railway, and the station opened in 1867. According to Dendy Marshall's 'History of the Southern Railway' it has at one time or another been known as 'West Humble', 'Boxhill & Burford Bridge' (for much of its history) and 'Box Hill'.

This is the view in the 'up' direction - towards Leatherhead and London. At the northern end of the station is a footbridge, and beyond that a brick-built road bridge. For a view taken from the road bridge in 1961, see Ben Brooksbank's TQ1651 : Boxhill & Westhumble Station
