Creekmoor Halt

Station opened - 19th June 1933

Station closed - 7th March 1966

Grid Ref: 195 SZ 001941

Situated midway between Poole and Broadstone, Creekmoor halt was a very simple structure built of pre-cast concrete with flat roofed wooden waiting shelters on both the up and down platforms. The two platforms were connected by a concrete footbridge located at the northern end of the station. There was also a level crossing at this end of the station, the gates being worked by hand, with the gate keeper living in the adjacent house.

From October the 18th 1970 the line was singled, with the down (Poole to Broadstone) line continuing to be worked as far as Wimborne until May 1977.

To the south of the station on the down side of the line, a siding led to Sykes Pottery, this was closed in June of 1969.
A little further south on the up side of the line were sidings for the Ministry of Supply. These were put into use on the 13th of September 1940 and continued to be used until July 1959.
Access to these sidings was controlled by local ground frames.
