Loddiswell station
Loddiswell station
The station was closed in 1963; the buildings presumably date from 1893, the year the station opened. "Loddiswell was among the first sites to have ... Camping Coaches (The GWR called them 'Camp Coaches'). ... Old coaches were 'converted' to provide holiday accommodation and sited in sidings at attractive locations. You had to arrive by train, no great hardship in days before universal car ownership, and the station facilities for Ladies and Gents were left unlocked for holidaymakers' use. Water was available from a stand-pipe at Loddiswell which was hardly convenient being at the far end of the station yard in the Cattle Dock. However at least an unending supply was available, at Avonwick the water had to be sent in Milk Churns by train. These were not particularly cheap holidays but must certainly have been very restful by any standard." LinkExternal link
