Dulverton

      The station wasn't actually in Dulverton,but about 2 miles south in the village of Brushford.It was opened on 1873 and being in Somerset, was the only station on the line not in Devon.

As well as being on the Exe Valley line,it was also on the Devon & Somerset line,so if you wanted to catch the train from Bampton to Barnstaple,this is where you would come to change trains.Likewise,if you wanted to go to Taunton,you could also catch the train from here in the opposite direction.

The station was closed in 1966 with some of the buildings becoming part of the Carnarvon Arms Hotel,before that closed in 2002 after feeling the knock-on effects of the 2001 foot and mouth outbreak.It has now been converted into residential dwellings.

This little section of the website is to pass on to you these little "titbits" and any other small pieces of information that I have come across.

24/4/19These interesting pictures of Dulverton Station were sent in by Fred Gillard, who visited in about 1970 to take some pictures for a model railway project that he was building. The station buildings were bought by the Carnarvon Arms (now closed down) and used as staff and overflow guest accommodation,before being converted into residential housing. Thank you very much Fred for taking the time to share your pictures.
