Bridge 2

 This bridge isn't on all maps and in fact when I first visited here,I mistook it for Bridge 1.When you first climb up the small bank and stand on the top of the bridge,it's not too inspiring and looks ordinary,it's from the side that this bridge needs to be viewed to appreciate its beauty.When seen from the side,with it's moss and ivy growing on it and with the river trickling beneath,to me it looked like something out of a fairy tale.

I found it difficult to imagine a train going over this bridge,as the bridge and setting just didn't seem "industrial" if you know what I mean,but such are the hidden delights of the Exe Valley Railway!What a lovely bridge it is and again I worry about its preservation.Who if anyone is responsible for it?Is it listed?I don't know,but will endeavour to find out.

Moving on we tried to find Bridge 3 whose tunnel used to go under the road.

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.

Dulverton 1intro




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.
