Michael Portillo’s programme “Great British Railway Journeys” was broadcast on Thursday but it is still available on iplayer.
Michael described Stogumber Station as ‘picturesque’ and ‘barely to have changed since Sharp’s time (Edwardian period)’.
Here are a few stills from the programme. Michael aboard the train from Bishop’s Lydeard.
