History

The station opened on 13 July 1896 as Woodbridge and served the Royal Agricultural Society's Woodbridge Showgrounds. It was renamed East Guildford on 1 April 1908. Since the change was at the request of the Guildford Municipal Council, the council was charged £35 5s 6d for the cost of changing the name on tickets and station signboards. The station was remodelled in the late 1960s. [2] [3] [4]
