History[edit]

The station opened as Westham and Pevensey on 27 June 1846 with the opening of the line between Lewes and St.Leonards (Bulverhythe). It was renamed Pevensey & Westham in January 1851 but in November 1851 was renamed Pevensey until January 1890 when it received its present name. Electric trains began serving the station in 1935. The signal box closed in 2015 when new signalling was introduced controlled from Three Bridges Regional Operations Centre.
