About

Maldon East and Heybridge railway station served the town of Maldon and nearby village of Heybridge between 1848 and 1964.

It was opened in 1848 by the Maldon, Witham & Braintree Railway (MWBR) on a branch line from Witham to Maldon, with intermediate halts at Wickham Bishops, and Langford and Ulting. The station was originally named as just 'Maldon' but was renamed to 'Maldon East' in 1889 and then 'Maldon East and Heybridge' in 1907.

The station acted as a terminus for two branch lines, the first running between Witham and Maldon, the second running from Maldon to South Woodham Ferrers. Due to the nature of the station being a terminus for both lines, the station is documented to have included a station builing and two platforms, goods shed, engine shed, turntable, and sidings with access to the River Blackwater.

Sadly, only the station building and part of the platform canopy remains today. The station entrance can be viewed from Station Road, while the platform canopy can be seen from the car park of the Blackwater Retail Park.

The station building is an impressive example of Victorian railway architecture, being built in the Jacobean style, with a large booking hall, waiting rooms and ticket office on the ground floor. The upper floor contained the station master's accommodation, which were accessed by a winding staircase in the booking hall. Originally, the single platform was part-covered with a glass roof, but this was removed after a terminating train exploded while in the station and caused significant damage.

The line and the station closed to passenger services in 1964 as part of the Beeching closures.
