Refurbishment

Ticket gates were installed in May 2009 and during late 2010 the station was refurbished as part of a 'deep clean' by Southern. A former waiting room for platforms 2 and 3, bricked up for over 40 years was partially restored and temporarily re-opened with a possible permanent re-opening being planned.

In popular culture

In the first episode of The Sweeney, "Ringer", the station's platforms, steps, and entrance were filmed for Regan and Carter's chase on foot of Billy who had stolen Regan's girlfriend's car.
