North Hayling station was a halt[2] on the single track Hayling Island branch, most often used to load oysters caught by local fishermen,[3] but also ornithologists and ramblers.[4] The station, along with the line was closed, in 1963.[5] The station was located on the west coast of Hayling Island, very close to the coast.[6] The station was very basic, with a timber concourse and wooden shelter.[7] The station has been demolished and a section of the trackbed is now a footpath.[8]
