The station was enlarged and remodelled to its present design in 1879 during the construction of the spur line from the main line to <a href="/pages/w/110710608952447">Hove</a> and the <a href="/pages/w/126011930775685">West Sussex coast line</a>. The station was then renamed <i>Preston Park</i> although the nearby <a href="/pages/w/123456747698451">Preston Park</a> did not exist until 1883.</p><p>In 1881 the notorious railway murderer <a href="/pages/w/135062933191595">Percy Lefroy Mapleton</a> alighted at the station after having killed Isaac Frederick Gold and dumped his body in <a href="/pages/w/144104218938386">Balcombe tunnel</a>.</p>
