Chris Bedford, AKA Dumpman, and I are off again exploring disused railways. Today we explore Bexhill West Station in East Sussex. We’re checking out the architecture and seek out remaining clues of the building’s previous life as a terminus station for the Sussex seaside holiday resort.
Bexhill West is a closed station in Bexhill-on-Sea in East Sussex. It was the terminus of the Bexhill West branch of the Hastings Line. It was opened by the South Eastern and Chatham Railway and was operated by the Southern Region of British Railways on closing. The station building still survives as an antiques house. The trackbed and site of the now demolished platforms are now occupied by commercial industrial buildings.
