Departing from NorthiamBritish Railways did not clear this site probably because there were still hop-pickers' and other special passenger trains coming to this station until nearly the line's closure. Fortunately Northiam and Bodiam are therefore still blessed with their original and characteristic Stephens station buildings.

A second station building matching the style of the original was built on the platform to house essential modern toilets during the 10 years whilst the station was the end of the line. The station building itself looks very much as it always did with a pot-bellied stove to keep passengers warm, but the goods office has been altered to form a very useful buffet for passengers joining from the adjacent main A28 road or even passing by. With extension to Bodiam, the buildings still serve park and ride passengers for Bodiam and Tenterden and the old down side platform was also brought back into use after a generation of disuse.

northiam staff cottageAlso at Northiam and tucked away across the present car park (formerly the goods yard) are two original Station Bungalows. These characteristic buildings were used for staff accommodation and are now used as a work base for our building heritage maintenance volunteers (known as the 'Tuesday Group').

The signal box is a modern building but characteristic of a rural branch line in steam days.
