Is this possible on one ticket?

Saturday I'm going to be doing the following:

Rochester - Strood
Strood - Newington
Newington - Rochester

Logic dictates that a Strood - Newington CDR @ £3.45 (with railcard) be valid, but is it legally/permitted to do so - or are split tickets required?

Thanks in advance :)

surely your first leg Rochester to Strood is going in the opposite direction to Newington?

Yes it will be but as I'm alighting at RTR on the return I'm thinking it might be valid .... I could be thinking too logically though.

once the return portion of a ticket is used the outward becomes invalid, so you couldn't then use the outward portion to get to Newington

You seem to be aiming to use part of the return portion before the out portion of the ticket. This is definitely not allowed under the conditions of carriage:

17. Using a return ticket
A return ticket (including a two-part return ticket) is only valid for the outward journey shown on that ticket if the ticket is completely unused. You may not use the outward part of a return ticket after you have used the return part
