Warblington railway station serves the Warblington and Denvilles suburbs of Havant in Hampshire.

It is located on the West Coastway Line which runs between Brighton and Southampton, 36 miles 66 chains (59.26 km) from Brighton.[1]. Situated opposite Warblington School, the station lies very close to a major road junction: the point at which the A259 coast road leaves the A27. Standing on the platform at the station entrance end it is possible to see the platforms of Havant railway station a short straight-line distance away.

History

The railway line between Brighton and Portsmouth was built in stages, and the section between Chichester and Havant was opened on 15 March 1847, and there were two intermediate stations, at Bosham and Emsworth.[2] Other stations were opened later, several coinciding with the introduction of steam rail-motor services between Portsmouth and Chichester by the London, Brighton and South Coast Railway on 11 June 1906.[3] One such station, named Denville Halt, was opened on 1 November 1907;[4] the following month this was renamed Warblington Halt.[5] On 5 May 1969 it was simplified to Warblington.[6]

Services
