Square headed windows, paired ones over with marginal glazing in the centre. Hipped roof with three tall stacks. Small gabled wings at either end, which are probably original.

History: Appledore station was opened in 1851. It is on the Hastings and Ashford line of the South Eastern Railway and all the stations were designed by William Tress. At Appledore the original building is almost unaltered. It opened as a single-track line with single sided stations, but was later doubled. It became a junction with the line to Dungeness in 1881 and has once again been singled since 1979.
