Langstone Railway cottages

Like many of our friends and colleagues, we were saddened to see the destruction by fire of the Langstone Railway station master’s cottage last weekend.  The much loved building with its faded yellow wooden siding has been a landmark near the Hayling Billy track since the late 18th century.

We hope that the structure, listed for its historical importance but sadly neglected in recent years, will be restored by the current owners.

The fire is now the matter of a police investigation and further details can be seen in this Portsmouth News article from Tuesday.
