Until just before the building works started there was the old railway sign on the remaining east platform. This had been removed before the barriers went up. Did it get removed for safe keeping or was it stolen?

Coincidentally I had taken a photo of it not long before it disappeared. You can see it on Flickr by clicking the link below

I am not sure what happened to the site but It was starting to look a bit beat up. I think the local kids had been using it for target practice!
 
As far as I know It was not the original sign anyway but a replica, so hopefully when they re-open that part of the Downs Link they will put a new one in.

Hi Paul

  

Many thanks for registering and providing this information. It's good to have a contribution from the Parish Council.

  

The picnic area sounds like a great idea.

I saw today that the road bridge over the old railway is no longer in service. How is the Downs Link cycle path going to cross this road now?

The new road cuts the old station in half. It looks like that if you come up the Downs Links from Southwater Country Park you will go past Southwater Medical Centre and then have to cross the new road.
 
On the other side of the road there is just the very end bit of the old platform left now. From there you will hopefully be able to pass under the bridge and continue on the Downs Link as normal.

Streetmap.co.uk usually does it for me. Try this link:

http://www.streetmap.co.uk/newmap.srf?x=515500&y=126500&z=3&sv=515500,126500&st=4&mapp=newmap.srf&searchp=newsearch.srf&dn=541&ax=515500&ay=126500

Not much help though!

Hi Stuart

  

Thank you for registering and welcome to the forums.

  

Here is a link to a very useful guide:

  

http://www.westsussex.gov.uk/leisureandtourism/prow/pdfs/DownsLinkRouteGuide.pdf

  

I picked up a printed version of this from the railway carriage at the old West Grinstead station a couple of years ago. I don’t know if they are still doing them but they where giving them away free even though they had been sold previously.

  

The printed guide was done as a set of individual maps in a plastic wallet which is quite handy for taking cycling or walking etc.

  

Regards
