30th September 1936
St Helier Weybridge station closes
Weybridge station stood in what is now Liberation Square. It opened on 25 October 1870 on the line connecting St Helier to Corbiere, and closed on 30 September 1936, along with the rest of the island’s western line, after a fire destroyed the majority of the company’s engines and carriages.
The original station had been a one-storey construction with a single platform, but this was replaced in 1901 by a two-stored building with two platforms and four lines.
Following its closure, the company sold the line and stations to the States of Jersey. The building is now part of Liberty Wharf.
