This station confusingly began life as Warlingham and may make many of you realise
why Upper Warlingham therefore gained it’s name. However, neither of them is particularly
close in distance to the village! Thankfully the name Warlingham was changed to
Whyteleafe South in 1956.
The station itself hasn’t seen too many changes, and all of it’s buildings still
survive, except for the original signal box. Another feature that was demolished
was a footbridge that was to the Caterham side of the level crossing. The Station
Master’s house still exists next to Platform 1, but has been a private residence
for many years.
One of the buildings on Platform 2 facilitates a small signal box that monitors the
two level crossings on the line.
