7 Pugham Crossing

The road crossing at Pugham, between Burlescombe and Sampford Peverell, was closed in 1974 and the cottage, signal hut and gates removed. It is now used infrequently by pedestrians. Hardly ever does it see a cyclist.

It was never a block post, having only repeater bells, latterly from Whiteball and Tiverton Junction.

From the road junction, the lane still leads as far as the crossing. A split second later and an Up H.S.T. would have shot from right to left; blue can just be seen through the building.
The scout successfully snapped this Cross Country Toyager.
Looking towards Exeter, the wide formation of the old B. & E. is evident.
