Althorne Station
Althorne Station
Althorne Station, on the branch to Southminster, is some way from the Althorne village although there are a few houses in the immediate vicinity. There is also a small community garden at the eastern end of the platform, the remaining vestige of the station garden which won many awards in the days when the station had its own staff.
Crouch Valley Line
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.
