Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Knowle Halt was a railway station in the county of Hampshire in England. It was served by trains on the Eastleigh to Fareham and Meon Valley lines. The station was opened on the 1 May 1907 by the London and South Western Railway (LSWR) to serve Knowle Hospital, then known as the Hampshire County Lunatic Asylum. Opened as Knowle Asylum Halt, its name was changed to Knowle Platform and then, from 1942, to Knowle Halt. From the beginning, this simple halt was fitted with electric lights, powered from the nearby hospital's generators. This made it one of the first rural stations in Hampshire to have electric lighting. The station was originally closed on 12 August 1963, but was re-opened the following day due to objections from trade unions. The halt finally closed on the 6 April 1964.show more
