A 1908 Railway Clearing House map of lines around the approaches to London Bridge, showing the original position of South Bermondsey station

The original station was situated to the north-west of South Bermondsey Junction, on the northern side of Rotherhithe New Road.[2] It opened on 13 August 1866 with the South London Line, and was originally named Rotherhithe; it was renamed South Bermondsey on 1 December 1869. It closed on 17 June 1928, when the present station, situated south of South Bermondsey Junction, took its place.[3] The 1928 station is on an embankment, and its platforms and buildings are of wooden construction; the current passenger access to the station from Rotherhithe New Road and Ilderton Road is by a footpath partly constructed on the embankment previously occupied by the line to Bricklayers Arms and Willow Walk Goods Depots. After the adjacent New Den Stadium, Millwall F.C.'s home ground, opened in 1993, a direct footpath was built from the station to the away section of the ground; this is used on match days only.

Southern trains from London Bridge to London Victoria via Denmark Hill called at South Bermondsey until December 2012 when they were replaced by London Overground East London Line trains between Surrey Quays and Clapham Junction.

Accidents and incidents

  • On 21 January 1947, an empty stock train was involved in a rear-end collision with an electric multiple unit.[4]
