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.
