Opened in 1869

Kemp Town Station stood in the former Coalbrook Road, and opened in 1869 with four sidings and one platform, but by 1880 a large goods-yard and coal depot with seventeen sidings had opened. The station building was similar to those at Hove, London Road and Portslade, but nothing now remains of it; the large Freshfield Industrial Estate was opened on the site in June 1974, and by 1987 over 500 people were employed there.
