Charlton Marshall Halt
Charlton Marshall Halt
This halt, on the former Somerset & Dorset line, opened on 5th July 1928 and closed from 17th September 1956. The remarkably well-preserved platforms are made out of pre-cast concrete. It's difficult to believe that express trains once belted through here at 70mph, bound for northern cities like Manchester, Liverpool and Sheffield.
When I took the picture, I didn't realise it was almost 53 years to the day that the halt saw its last passengers.
