Ockley Railway Station

Facts and Figures

Ockley railway station serves the villages of Ockley and Capel in Surrey, England and is situated 1.4 miles (2.3 km) from Ockley village and only 0.5 miles (0.80 km) west of the village of Capel. The station is 29 railway miles (47 km) south of London Victoria station. Ockley is managed by Southern which also provides all the services. It opened as Ockley & Capel on 1 May 1867 as part of the London Brighton & South Coast Railway extension to Horsham. Its situation next to Le Steeres of Jayes Park brickworks (closed c 1914) and nearby Phorpres Works (now Clockhouse Works) allowed for substantial brickwork traffic for many years. Milk traffic was also important until the early 1930s when this trade was lost to road transport. Goods traffic declined slowly over the next 30 years ceasing finally in June 1962. The station could very easily have suffered a similar fate (with the potential loss of many of its most important historic features - especially the wooden station canopy) as Warnham station level crossing and signal box, but in recent years Ockley Station has been protected from such an outcome by the efforts of one of the property owners living in the Station Approach who a number of years ago successfully applied to English Heritage to have the station Grade II listed. This means Network Rail must maintain it in its present form. A great deal of further detail on the history of this station and the entire section of line between Dorking and Horsham can be found in John Harrod's Up The Dorking
