SU4143 : Longparish station

taken 12 years ago, near to Middleton, Hampshire, Great Britain

Longparish station
Longparish station
Opened in 1885 this station was built to one of the standard designs of the time of the London & South Western Railway: compare it with that at Worplesdon SU9855 : Worplesdon station. It was on the line from Hurstbourne Junction to Fullerton Junction which was built to carry north-south traffic in competition with the Didcot, Newbury & Southampton line which was backed by the rival Great Western Railway. It soon became obvious that the line was a white elephant. Passenger services ceased in 1931 and the track north of Longparish was lifted, although goods trains continued to serve Longparish until 1956. The station is now a private house.
