"It was one of those moments you always remember – a first glimpse, caught through the dappled sunlight of a woodland glade. Deep within the heart of North Devon, I came across this tiny wayside halt, no longer than a single carriage length."
A remote rural station with one small siding used by a local farmer, it was closed in 1966 and now forms part of the popular Tarka trail, a route for ramblers promoted by the local council.
