Land Purchase at Stogumber Station Published: 13th December 2019

Land Purchase at Stogumber Station

 

With the aid of funding from Stogumber Station, the West Somerset Railway is very pleased to announce that it has purchased a strip of historic woodland flanking the rear of the tea garden at Stogumber Station.   

 

As well as being a natural haven for wildlife, the land contains many mature oak trees thought to date back to 1862 when the Station first opened to passenger traffic, and forms a very important backdrop to the picturesque Station garden.

 

Its purchase, which was only made possible by fund raising activities at the Station, safeguards the unique character of this popular country Station for the enjoyment of its many visitors and for future generations to come.
