A Level 4 Historic Building Record of the Signal Box at Billingshurst Railway Station, Billingshurst, West Sussex was commissioned by CgMs Consulting, on behalf of Network Rail. The record was required in advance of decommissioning the box and relocating it to Amberley Museum and Heritage centre, to ensure its survival in the form of an exhibit accessible to visitors.

The box is a Saxby and Farmer 1b, a type that had become redundant by 1876 when this one was installed at Billingshurst. As such, it is probable that the box is a re-used one removed from a previous location to the Billingshurst site. The lever frame is 1876 vintage, numbered 2273, a Saxby and Farmer Rocker 5”.
