Railway Cottages, Thorndon Cross
The cottages would have been for workers on the Okehampton to Bude railway, built past here in 1879 and closed in 1966. This the location of Maddaford Moor Halt - see SX5394 : Maddaford Moor Halt, North Devon. View from a gateway practically on a gridline by the A3079, and rather prettier than the same view I took very recently on a gloomy day.
