Hilsea Railway Station

Facts and Figures

Hilsea railway station is a railway station in Portsmouth, England serving the northern end of Portsea Island, including a large industrial estate nearby. It is located on the Portsmouth Direct Line which runs between London (London Waterloo) and Portsmouth (Portsmouth Harbour). There were extensive sidings at Hilsea during the second world war. This railway station is mainly used by commuters who work in nearby Anchorage Park industrial estate. Only stopping trains stop here. This station is rarely manned, only in its peaked hours between 6 and 7am. Historically, during the Battle of Havant, Hilsea was the terminus of an omnibus link from Denvilles Halt, just east of Havant. When the Portsmouth Direct Line had been constructed by the LSWR, at the request of the residents of Portsmouth, it was necessary that trains run from the Portcreek Junction railway triangle, to Havant Junction, along track owned by the rival LBSCR. The latter firm refused to allow that and engaged in militant obstruction of the track to prevent the running of a through train service for several months.
