Description:
Alresford railway station and serves the village of Alresford, Essex, England. The station is on the Tendring Hundred Railway (also known as the Sunshine Coast Line) 12 km (7½ miles) south east of Colchester. It is owned by Network Rail and managed by National Express East Anglia.

History

Opened by the Tendring Hundred Railway, then by the Great Eastern Railway, it became part of the London and North Eastern Railway during the Grouping of 1923. The line then passed on to the Eastern Region of British Railways on nationalisation in 1948.

When Sectorisation was introduced, the station was served by Network SouthEast until the Privatisation of British Railways.

As of February 2006, the original station house is almost derelict but is available to let. Tickets are sold from a small cabin close to Station Road. The ticket clerk is also responsible for moving the level crossing gates each time a train passes.

Prior to electrification of the line, the ticket clerk operated the level crossing gates, home and distant signals on both the up and down lines, his own level crossing gate lock and the one for the level crossing a short distance down the line, at all times that the signal box was unmanned. Edward Burbage fulfilled this duty for nearly 50 years.The station gates were replaced with barriers in 2008 by Network Rail.
