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.
