Pentridge is/was accessible from either Salisbury or Tisbury stations on the
Waterloo to Exeter line via Woking and Andover. Probably using the then
named Charing Cross, Euston & Hampstead (now Northern Line) into its
terminus at Charing Cross. It would then be a short hop across either
Hungerford Bridge or by South Eastern Railway from Charing Cross changing at
Waterloo East for Waterloo main line and then out to Salisbury.
For convenience Salisbury would have been the most direct as it is a
straight run from Salisbury to Pentridge on what is now the A354 which would
have existed if by a different notation.
I hope this helps?

Could anyone tell me, please, which the nearest railway station to Pentridge
is? I have a record of someone travelling there, in 1904, from West
Hampstead. It would seem it was for a visit of only a few days, so I assume
that this would have been the most likely mode of transport.
Regards and TIA
