Hamworthy Station, between Bournemouth and Wareham, was at one time Hamworthy Junction where the "old route" to Brockenhurst via Ringwood and avoiding Bournemouth started. The semaphore signal in the background on the left is for the rarely used Hamworthy Goods branch.

Heathfield Heathfield Station on the Cuckoo line. This station had the distinction of being the first public building to be lit by natural gas when the LB&SCR discovered gas whilst looking for water in 1895. It was so lit from 1898 until 1963. The gas was not used apart from lighting the station as this gas supply was too small to be commercially viable.
