Portishead South halt Distance from Weston : 13.1 miles   


The railway followed the line of Cadbury Road, in what was then a rural area but is now covered in housing. It crossed Bristol Road passing through a gap in the terrace of houses opposite, now partially filled by a garage. The halt was situated just north of this crossing (see Detail map). The halt had a shelter, one of the better ones in fact. The crossing was gated, and there was an adjacent siding used by a coal merchant. The next halt towards Clevedon, Clapton Road, was only 0.6 miles away to the south.
