Doesn't @ianrauk live at and commute from Barming? The station with the most thefts.

I did for a while. It's a small, unmanned country station so it's no surprise.

It's not the station with the most thefts either, that's St Albans, rather then the most thefts per passenger number.

That's incredible. I've had two bikes stolen from Bookham ( over 15 years) but haven't bothered reporting either ( old bikes or no insurance) so the real figure makes that sleepy village look like the Bronx.

Not sure what the point of "rate of theft per 100000" passengers is. Presumably they aren't all on bikes. If 99,999 passengers are pedestrians and there's one cyclist that's a really annoyed cyclist.

My local station seems pretty steady at 1 bike theft a year. As there's already been a theft this year, I reckon I don't even need a lock until Christmas.

Locally, the list in full based on footfall, number of secure spaces, and thefts of bikes over three years

Hebden Bridge - 17 bikes stolen over three years
Todmorden - 14
Halifax - 13
Sowerby Bridge - 5
