Site of Letterston railway station
Site of Letterston railway station
This is the site of the small station at Letterston, opened in 1895, originally as part of The North Pembrokeshire and Fishguard Railway, between Fishguard & Goodwick and Clynderwen, before the line was taken over by the Great Western Railway. Passenger services were withdrawn in 1937, but goods traffic was retained until 1965. The main station buildings and signal box were situated on the Up platform, near the dark green trees in the distance, on the left side of the railway lines. The goods yard and cattle pens on the Down platform were situated on the right side of the railway lines, where the buildings in the distance are sited. Hardly a trace of the old station remains, although the course of the former railway line can be followed from this spot.
