Holland Road Railway Bridge
Holland Road Railway Bridge
Holland Road's southern end begins on the A259 and northern end ends just over the railway bridge with its junction with Lyndhurst Road as seen in the picture. In fact it originally ended at the brick wall to the left of the picture as the road originally served the first Hove station that was built in 1840 to the east of this picture. This closed in 1880 with the land around becoming a goods yard. However, another station, Holland Road Halt was built below the brick wall and opened in 1905 and remained in use until it was shut in 1956. The entrance was on the very left of the picture and required passengers to walk down a flight of steps to the wooden platforms. Nothing now remains of the halt.
