Railway station built 1850 by Sir William Tite for the London and South Western Railway. Largely unoccupied, boarded up and deterioration increasing. Externally weathertight. No longer required for railway use and is likely to be sold. Nearby development site now under construction may help as a catalyst for combined action by English Heritage, the Local Authority and others.

One thought on “Kew Bridge Rail Station

  1. My son has a school project to do about Kew Bridge Station in Victorian times. It would be nice if anyone could direct me to some late 19th early 20th century photographs or etchings. Also, the disused old Kew Bridge Station on the triangle. Copies of the train routes from this period. Any help gratefully received.
