Wallington station
Wallington station opened on 10th May 1847 by the London, Brighton & South Coast Railway on the new Croydon to Epsom railway. Wallington at that time was just a small hamlet around Wallington Green. What is now central Wallington was just fields. The new station, which stood some distance from the hamlet, was called Carshalton as that was the largest nearby place it was built to serve. The population expanded around the new station and when in 1868 Carshalton was finally given its own station on the newly-opened Sutton to Mitcham Junction line, the old Carshalton station became Wallington station.
The bridge immediately ahead carries a footbridge and the one beyond is for Park Lane.
