Chestfield & Swalecliffe Railway Station

Facts and Figures

Chestfield & Swalecliffe railway station, is a UK railway station on the Chatham Main Line in north Kent, and serves Chestfield and Swalecliffe, villages which are now part of the built-up area between Whitstable and Herne Bay. Train services are provided by Southeastern.

The station was originally opened as "Swalecliffe Halt" on 6 July 1930 by Southern Railway. It was latter renamed "Chestfield & Swalecliffe Halt", shortened to Chestfield in 1987 and reverted to "Chestfield & Swalecliffe" in 1989. Although the railway station itself actually lies in the village of Swalecliffe, nearby Chestfield is substantially the bigger village.

There are waiting shelters and an Up side booking office, which is open for a few hours each morning; the platforms are built of rails and sleepers. The "down" ticket office was burnt down by vandals in 1989.
