Bridge 4b

  There seemed to be less of this side of the bridge,but maybe that might be because this side hasn't got an arch,so the structure is smaller.The brickwork once again seems to be solid still,but it is overgrown,so it is quite hard to see it all.Looking up at it we could see that there was still a pece of the iron girder in situ and looking down just beneath it,we spotted a piece of girder on the river bed.

This side wasn't as interesting as the other,but being able to stand and wonder at the beauty of the River Exe made up for that.Climbing up on to the top of this side,you can easily see the raised bank of the railway,heading off towards Bridge 5.In fact there is even a large amount of the old track ballast still there.

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.
