If you didn't know that the platform was there you could easily miss it,as it is very over grown and hard to spot.There is a concrete post along the roadside that hints at a railway past,but the most obvious clue to this being a halt is the old wooden kissing gate that is still in place.We saw one of these at Burn Halt,although that one was probably in better condition.
Out of all the platforms we have seen so far,this one is in the worst condition.It looks like the paving that would have been on top of the platform has been robbed out and tree roots have done much damage to the platform.Sarah has had some trees felled,to try and preserve the platform,but much more needs to be done if nature is not to completely reclaim the site.
A large,roofed,wooden work shed has been constructed beside the platform,which does detract from the site,but again people have to be able to make use of their land and Sarah told us that the shed had no foundations,so was not damaging anything and could easily be removed if ever the halt was to be used again.
Although mainly overgrown,it is still possible to see the platform slopes and the brickwork of the 109 feet platform and despite the tree roots it is still largely in good condition.
Further down the platform,the southern slope is still there and the line can still be made out,going into the distance towards Tiverton.There is a metal kissing gate that leads to steps up to this southern end of the platform,in the field next to the river.There is also a hand rail for these steps still there.
We couldn't quite understand why there would be an entrance to the platform here,but our guess was that maybe there was once a footpath that went along the river to Cove from up towards Stoodleigh and passengers would walk down the path through the fields to the halt.
