|Corfe Mullen Halt was built for the residents
of East End, a small residential area of Corfe Mullen. Situated
approx 1.5 miles to the north west of
Broadstone, it consisted of a short single platform, lit by
a single gas lamp located at the western end of the platform. A
small concrete waiting shelter was provided for the waiting
passengers, this being partially cut into the bank.
It was located on the southern side of the line in a cutting, being reached from the adjacent Wimborne Road bridge by a fairly steep flight of steps.
The station remained open for only 28 years, closing in 1956.
The cutting between Wimborne Road and Lambs Green Lane has since been partially filled in and is now the front garden of a house.

(Originally known as Knoll Lane, or Barney's Crossing)
Approx 1.5 miles west of Corfe Mullen Halt,
the single line from Broadstone
joined the original line to Wimborne
at Corfe Mullen Junction.
The line to Wimborne was eventually closed in 1933, becoming a long siding (Carters Siding). This siding was closed in September of 1959, becoming a storage line for old B.R. wagons until 1969.
