Cressing railway station lies near Braintree and serves the little villages of Black Notley and Cressing in Essex. Like many stations in the UK, it was opened in the mid-19th century by the Eastern Counties Railway firstly for goods traffic and then passenger services a few months later. Its original name Bulford was later changed to Cressing in early 20th century. It’s a one-platform station which is long enough to serve a nine-carriage train and still has one of the original red-brick buildings and overhanging roof intact. Along with the trains, the station is run and managed by Abellio Greater Anglia. There are only a few facilities here including bench seating, station lighting, and timetable posters. Throughout peak weekdays, there is an hourly direct service to Braintree in 7 minutes and London Liverpool Street in 53 minutes.  

When you disembark at Cressing, you’ll be just moments away from the challenging Notleys Golf Club, an 18-hole course located in the valley of the River Brain.
