Happy Christmas from the White Horse Inn

Happy Christmas from all the volunteers at Stogumber Station seen here enjoying their Christmas dinner at the White Horse Inn in Stogumber, the one volunteer missing is behind the camera,  Robin White. Here Stationmaster Bob Preston thanks the volunteers for a tremendous effort this year.

 

Woodland behind the station

 

West Someset Railway PLC have made this announcement.

With the aid of funding from Stogumber Station, the West Somerset Railway has announced the purchase of 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 Stogumber Station first opened to passenger traffic, and forms a very important backdrop to the picturesque Station garden

The purchase – 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.

Short back and sides?

Here is Steve Lewis’ video of the work.

Many thanks to Phil, Nigel, Jean, Tom, Ian, Shirl and Station Master Bob for removing all the brambles and weeds from the station embankment.
