Further along on the other side of the river,there used to be another bridge that the line went under.St.Andrew street used to go over this bridge towards Collipriest.After this bridge was demolished to make way for the new road,a modern footbridge was made to replace it and is still there today.Standing on the bridge I felt a bit sorry for the people of St.Andrew Street who had their road decapitated like this.

We then crossed back over the river,to see if there was anything to be found to the west of West Exe Halt.If you look on the Google Map,it is easy to trace the route of the line as it leaves the halt.Woodward Road now lies on top of where the line used to go and by the curve of this road,was built directly on top of the old line.There is nothing to be seen down this road full of industrial units,that comes to a dead end.

News From Down the Line

newslogo44Every now and then when I talk to people and they hear of my interest in the Exe Valley Railway,they tell me little bits of information or recall an old memory.It always amazes me how even today,more than 50 years after it's closure,the fondness with which people remember the railway and how fresh the memories seem to be to them.

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.
