In 1886 the London and South Western Railway built a direct line between Christchurch and Brockenhurst, with stations at Hinton Admiral, New Milton, and Sway. All three stations were built to almost exactly the same plan, still discernable today even though modern alterations now differentiate the three.

The footbridge links the platforms at the eastern end of the station buildings:

Looking west from near the footbridge along platform 1. If there were any doubt about the identikit nature of the station buildings here and at Hinton Admiral and Sway, the arrangement of the windows is another clue:
