Along our way we also visited a couple of bridges in Brushford.Although on the Devon & Somerset Line,they are worth a look.The first bridge is a solid road bridge,but it is difficult to get a good look at it,as there are private houses on either side.

The other bridge is further down the road into Brushford village and is much more visually pleasing and accessible.It is a lovely solid bridge that is in good condition,although a big block of it had fallen out when we visited.I do hope that someone is responsible for looking after it.

If you climb on top of the bridge you can get a look down the line either way,which I think is now a foot path,as well as a good look down to the road.Also of interest in Brushford,although not train related,is the amazing oak tree in the churchyard.A really amazing and special tree that is well worth stopping to see.

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.
