The Old West Bay Station
The Old West Bay Station
West Bay railway station was the terminus of the Bridport Railway. In 1879, the Great Western Railway, extended the railway to Bridport Harbour and the line opened in 1884. The station was called West Bay by the GWR in order to encourage holiday traffic. The line between West Bay and Bridport closed to passengers in 1930, and operated for goods services only until its final closure in 1962. The station building today is a cafe.
