Morebath Junction Halt
The halt was opened in 1928,to provide a station that was closer to Morebath village than Morebath station and provide a more regular service for locals,as trains from both the Devon & Somerset Railway and the Exe Valley Railway stopped there.
Although a windswept inconspiculous platform in the middle of nowhere,the halt was popular as it gave you access to the major towns of Barnstaple,Exeter,Taunton and Tiverton.
The junction was the only place in the country during the 19th century to have a signalwoman,a Mrs.Towns, who was appointed in 1890 and served for over twenty years.
There was no actual proper footpath to the platform,just a farm track and people would often take a change of footwear,leaving their muddy boots in the small shelter on the platform, to change back into when they returned from their journey.
