Bedhampton Crossing

The staff on the Hayling Billy branch line worked shifts and spent part of their time at Havant and Bedhampton stations.

This postcard of Bedhampton station and crossing in circa 1905 qualifies for inclusion.

For those not familiar with this location, Bedhampton is the first station from Havant in the Portsmouth direction. The station and footbridge are on the left of this image.

    Fantastic picture – many years ago (around the 1960’s) we lived at 123 Park Lane Bedhampton, in a row of bungalows, would love to hear what happened to number 123 as on a visit three years ago could not find the bungalow and the area has changed out of all recognition. During the time we lived there we could see over to the Hulbert Road leading to Waterlooville – but the area became a large building site (Leigh Park) and Park Lane had not been tarmaced at that time.
