Bampton Bumper

While riding north from Sampford Peverell in summer, 2018, to join the Devon & Somerset at Morebath Junction, the scout took the secluded lane following the River Lowman from Uplowman to Huntsham and then skirted Bampton Down to reach the old stopping place on the Exe Valley line.

A bus shelter stands on the station bridge, now filled in, as is the cutting beyond.
Behind the camera is Station Road (originally Western Way) and off camera at left is the car park on the station site.
“Station Cottage,” at right, was the Station Master’s house.
New Road, now South Molton Road, originally joined Luke Street on the other side of the bridge, but now sweeps in from the left across infilled railway land.
The model was one of 21 dotted about the area as part of Tiverton Museum’s “All aboard! family sculpture trail” in 2016. +
