East Farleigh Railway Station

Facts and Figures

East Farleigh railway station is located to the south-west of Maidstone, Kent, England, on the Medway Valley Line. Although closer to the village of East Farleigh, on the opposite (south) bank of the River Medway, the station is actually located in Barming Parish. Train services are provided by Southeastern. East Farleigh station is about 30 yards from the mediaeval East Farleigh Bridge taking foot and road passengers across the river, one of only four such bridges between Maidstone and Tonbridge. The station has two platforms, staggered to either side of a busy level-crossing. On the southbound platform is a signal box which remains to control the level-crossing. The old ticket office, located in a wooden building on the southbound platform, closed in 1989; this was APTIS-equipped from 1987 to closure. This building then remained disused for many years though in good condition, and is now used by Network Rail staff. In 2007, a PERTIS (Permit to Travel) ticket machine was installed at the entrance to the southbound platform, which is behind the signal box. Facilities on the northbound platform are limited to a modern waiting shelter. A footbridge spans the tracks and is accessed from the northbound platform. In autumn 2008, a large area of formerly unmade land, immediately north of the station, was prepared as a surfaced car park accommodating 30+ vehicles.
