Mill Hill

Mill Hill was the penultimate station before Cowes which opened with the Cowes & Newport Railway in 1862 and had just the one platform, with neither passing loop nor siding. Just to the north of the station was the 208 yard Mill Hill tunnel, the shortest of the four tunnels on the island.
A very neat and tidy looking Mill Hill station photographed in 1963 with, as is so obvious, the tunnel entrance just off the end of the platform.
