NOSTALGIA: Would you dare do this in this Portsmouth street today?

Have your say

Taken in 1881, the year it opened, this picture captures Lavant station in all its Victorian glory.

Lavant was one of the stops on the Chichester to Midhurst line and lost its role when the line closed to passengers in 1935.

The station building design featured a booking office on the level of the road nearby (behind the fence), passengers having to descend by stairs to the platform built in a cutting.
