Longdown Railway Walk

Opened in 1903, the Longdown Railway Station was built as part of the Teign Valley Railway Line, located between Ide Halt and Dunsford Halt.  The station was at its busiest in the 1930s with seven daily services between Exeter and Heathfield.  The line operated during World War II, albeit with a reduced number of trains and was used as a diversionary route when the South Devon main line was unavailable.

Closed since 1958, local railway historian Mark Chambers and Charles Eden will guide you on this rare opportunity to visit and learn more about this local railway station.

The tour starts at the Longdown Railway Station located off the B3212, just west of Longdown village. Parking is limited at the station, so please be prepared to car share if possible.  The conditions maybe muddy so please wear suitable footwear. Unfortunately no dogs are allowed. 

All funds raised from this event are donated towards the upkeep of the Longdown Village Hall.
