"The railway station built by the Great Eastern Railway in 1889 at the junction between the Southminster and Maldon branch lines lies about a mile away from the village of Woodham Ferrers from which the station took its name. The new station buildings together with six workers’ cottages established the first nucleus of buildings in what was essentially a ‘greenfield’ site which in due course became South Woodham Ferrers." [South Woodham Ferrers Local History Society]

The Maldon branch line was closed and removed in the Beeching plan, the Southminster line continues in operation.
