Hanborough Station
The station opened in 1853 and for some reason was named Handborough. It took until 1992 for the railway to accept this was a mistake and remove the redundant D.
I have been sent some more info re the station name :- "I noticed your comment about the name of the station - Hanborough/Handborough.
I've been researching some family history in Hanborough, and I've noticed that the village was recorded as Handborough in the 1881 & 1891 censuses. It is recorded as Hanborough in the 1901 census, but Handborough again in the 1911 census. So it seems that the railway company were following local practice when they named the station Handborough. On the other hand, the Ordnance Survey maps of the late 19th century consistently call it Hanborough, and also mark the station as Hanborough."
Thanks Rich Tea.
