Norbiton station
Norbiton station
The London & South Western Railway built its line to Southampton further south through Surbiton because of opposition by Kingston Corporation, worried about the effect on the coaching trade. This opposition continued even during the laying of the line from Twickenham via Teddington, although this line did reach a terminus in Kingston in 1863. In 1869 the line was extended through Norbiton to connect to the main line southwest of the present New Malden station. When Queen Victoria visited distinguished residents in the Coombe Hill area, the royal train stopped at Norbiton, as it was the only station in the area where the platform is at ground level.
This is the view along the up platform to the original Victorian station building.
