Canterbury East Railway Station

Facts and Figures

Canterbury East railway station is one of two stations in Canterbury in Kent, England. It is south-southwest of the city centre and is served by Southeastern.

The station and its line were built by London, Chatham and Dover Railway, while Canterbury West was built by South Eastern Railway.

Although called Canterbury East the station is about 1⁄2 mile (0.8 km) due south of Canterbury West station, and only about 20 yards (20 m) to its east.

The framework of the platform canopies were originally installed at the never-opened station at Lullingstone.

The semaphore signals at the station were replaced with coloured lights in December 2011. The elevated signal box remains but is no longer in use, with signalling on the line operated from a control room at Gillingham. The signal box has now been given Grade II listed building status.

Canterbury East did have ticket barriers but they were removed in early 2011, as they were the only ones of the kind in the country and spare parts were no longer easy to get. Coventry and Earlsfield are the only other stations to lose their ticket barriers.
