REF NR: 312

1. The station has been demolished with a new road running across the south end of the site. The adjacent Station Hotel still stands having been converted into residential units. As built Wroxall Station had a single platform on the up side of the line. In 1925 the Southern Railway increased the line capacity on the Ryde - Ventnor route. At Wroxall this included a new crossing loop and down side platform with a small waiting shelter. A single siding served a small goods yard on the other side of the Castle Road overbridge.
