What it Looks Like Today: Morebath Station to Morebath Junction
Although Morebath station isn't part of the Exe Valley Line(it's on the Devon & Somerset),I was still interested to see how it is today,so I set off with Christine,curious to see what we'd find. We first drove to Morebath and headed for the old station which is to the east of Morebath village.I already knew that the old station house was now a residential dwelling,but we drove there and took a few pictures.The old gates are still there and it's easy to imagine the days when people would walk up the drive to catch their trains.
Next we went down the other fork in the road to where there used to be a bridge over the road,marked by an orange marker on our Google map.I have called this "bridge 1",but I wonder if it was known locally by another name?I'm no strucrtural engineer,but I believe this to be a beam bridge with the "beam" bit missing. The structure is in good condition for its age and the brickwork seems sound.
