Pylle railway station was a station on the Highbridge branch of the Somerset and Dorset Joint Railway. Opened on 3 February 1862, it was reduced to halt status on 4 November 1957. Originally the S&DJR main line, the railway was reduced to branch status when the extension from Evercreech Junction to Bath was built. A passing point on the single line, the station's loop was removed long before it closed, with the railway, on 7 March 1966. [1]
