Halwill Station looking south in August 1977, eleven years after closure. Nature has now taken over much of the site. The main station building on the down platform remains in good condition but all down platform buildings have been demolished.

Halwill Station looking north along the down platform in September 1977. The platform gate is open and the platform appears to have become an unofficial footpath; it remains clear of vegetation and free of vandalism and graffiti.

Looking north at the Southern Railway slaughterhouse in September 1977; it replaced a smaller LSWR building. Locally produced meat was loaded into refrigerated containers for distribution by rail. The goods shed is behind the photographer.
