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.

Exe Valley train Exeter St Davids 1962250



04/09/18 I was recently contacted by one of our readers Barry Hilton,who when younger visited the Southwest and took some pictures down at Exeter St.Davids.This is what he told me.

"Taken 'in my teens', by a SLR Dacora II camera, on Ilford colour film, 120 size negs (2 1/4 inch square). It was the only colour film that I used as they were relatively expensive for me at the time, something like 22/6d.Taken in the summer of 1962 as a result of a family holiday in the South West, I would travel the railway systems of the area taking photos whilst the rest of the family spent most of the time on the beach. I seem to remember buying a 'runabout' ticket for 10/6d which covered all the Exe Valley system at the time."
