It was easy to find the pathway up to the the line,although be prepared for nettles and brambles.I should say here that I imagine that the pathway is now privately owned,but I saw no sign saying this and decided that there was no harm in us having a look up the path.
It was a bit of a battle through the brambles and nettles,but to be honest,I was so excited to get to the end of the path and up onto the line,I wasn't too concerned.The path and the hand rails are in such good condition,that if someone did half an hours work with a strimmer,it would be like new.
When we reached the top of the path,we once again had that same feeling that we had first had at Morebath Junction Halt.Once again,there in front of us was the platform! Despite my amazement at seeing my second intact Exe Valley Railway platform,my thoughts turned to walking over the bridge.I immediately had second thoughts about this,as my boy was with me and it could well be dangerous,so maybe another day.
Any how,it looked like attempts had been made to clear the platform,as there is much cut wood about,although this could just be a Devonian offering to the train gods.The platform seems quite skeletal compared to others I've seen,and at first I thought that maybe some of the stone had been "robbed out",but no, that's how it was made.
