Petersfield Railway Station

Facts and Figures

Petersfield railway station is a railway station serving the market town of Petersfield, Hampshire, England. It is located on the Portsmouth Direct Line which runs between London (London Waterloo) and Portsmouth (Portsmouth Harbour railway station). The station has two tracks, and two platforms, although in the past had a third platform branching into the coal yard situated adjacent to the station and a fourth platform on the north side of the level crossing serving the branch to Midhurst closed in 1955. The main buildings date back to the opening of the line in 1859 and are of a "town" type, larger than other wayside stations on the route but identical to Godalming. There used to be a halt between Petersfield and Rowlands Castle, to the south of Buriton Tunnel, called Woodcroft. It was built to serve the local naval establishment. Because of its naval nature it wasn't featured on many maps, some maps however did mark it by a little tab but without a name.
