Welcome to Three Rivers Rail website!

Welcome to the website of the Three Rivers Rail Partnership, a group of local authorities, local people and the rail industry. Working to promote our train and local bus services, and doing what we can to improve our stations and services.

Why Three Rivers? The rail routes which the partnership covers run alongside, or cross the Avon, Itchen and Test rivers – hence ‘Three Rivers’.

Things are looking good for rail travel in the area: We now have a direct train to Salisbury from Chandler’s Ford, Eastleigh, Southampton Airport and much of the Southampton suburban area. This also improves the service to Dean and Mottisfont Dunbridge and increases the number of trains between Southampton, Romsey and Salisbury, and increases to at least two every hour – Dean and Mottisfont & Dunbridge now have an hourly train service Mondays to Saturdays.

On this website you will find information about trains calling at Salisbury, Dean, Mottisfont & Dunbridge, Redbridge, Millbrook, Southampton, St Denys, Swaythling, Southampton Airport, Eastleigh, Shawford, Winchester & Chandler’s Ford. As well as Bursledon, Hamble, Netley, Sholing, Woolston and Bitterne. There’s also station information and ideas for places you can visit within easy reach of the train: Ancient churches, a stately home, shopping, theatre, cinema, live music, restaurants, pubs, even a Tudor garden and tea room.

Our activities incorporate the Department for Transport’s Community Rail Development Strategy’s 4 pillars:

  1. Providing a voice for the community
  2. Promoting sustainable, healthy and accessible travel
  3. Bringing communities together and supporting diversity and inclusion
  4. Supporting social and economic development

The full strategy can be found at: www.gov.uk/government/publications/community-rail-development-strategy

If you would like to help us – if you live near one of these stations and can be a volunteer on a station adoption scheme, or if you just want to join in our activities please do get in touch.

Many thanks

Tomorrow, Saturday 23 January we are holding our next Freeshop at Swaythling Railway Station between 1030 – 1215

Once again, it promises to be very cold in the morning, so please try not to turn up early as you may get “frozen” in the queue! There will be plenty for everyone so why not come along a bit later when it will be warmer?

Please remember one re-usable bag only per person to help give everyone a share and please bring a face-mask.

We have plenty in the baby store in terms of clothes, books, toys and equipment, so come and make use of that as well.

If you have any spare donations of fruit, veg, dried goods, packets and tins, they would also be very welcome.

So, looking forward to seeing you tomorrow!
