Article on port, town in Hampshire (7)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

andover

Here is my best explanation:

'town in hampshire' is the definition.

(I've seen this before)

'article on port' is the subsidiary indication.

'article' becomes 'an' (example of the part-of-speech).

'on' is a charade indicator (letters next to each other).

'port' becomes 'dover'.

'an'+'dover'='andover'

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

(Other definitions for andover that I've seen before include "Hants town", "Hampshire town", "New town development" and "Town in Hampshire".)
