Aldrington Railway Station

Facts and Figures

Aldrington railway station, sometimes known by its former names of Aldrington Halt and Dyke Junction, is a railway station in Hove, in East Sussex, England. The station is 2 miles (3 km) west of Brighton on the West Coastway Line. Opened in 1905 by the London, Brighton and South Coast Railway as Dyke Junction Halt, with wooden platforms, it was renamed Aldrington in 1932 and rebuilt in concrete by the Southern Railway. It is situated just east of the former junction with the branch line to Devil's Dyke, which opened in 1887 and closed in 1938; the layout and curvature of certain roads and buildings immediately north-west of the station indicates where the branch ran. The station was staffed during peak hours until approximately 1990, after which the hut which served as a ticket office was demolished. As of 2009, the old concrete shelters have been replaced with reinforced plastic shelters which are now the only features on the platforms. Ramps lead down to street level. There are ticket-issuing machines at the entrances to each platform.Pre-purchased tickets can also be collected on these machines. There is no footbridge connecting the platforms with each other. However, there is a tunnel under the railway lines at the western end of the platforms which was originally built to allow the local farmer to move his cattle between fields which became separated with the arrival of the railway.
