Description

Starting at Moretonhampstead, various remains were seen including the goods shed, listed engine shed and a stretch of platform. This was followed by a short stretch of the Wray Trail, giving way to farm track after a short diversion.

Spectacular granite bridges, towering embankments and deep, rocky cuttings are seen en route to Lustleigh.

The owners of Lustleigh station kindly allowed access to film and extensive views of this picture postcard location are seen.

Various picturesque bridges in the village of Lustleigh are seen before moving off in another deep cutting towards the site of Lustleigh Mill, where a spectacular granite two-arch viaduct is seen.

A stretch of inaccessible track bed follows, which includes the equally spectacular, three-arch Knowle viaduct. Although the track bed was not followed at this point, maximum use is made of views from the public way before the summer leaves obscured the view.

The site of Pullabrook (Hawkmoor) Halt is shown from the road that served it, while not walking the track as it was being used as a cow feeding station.

The bike was then used to travel the track bed in the direction of Bovey Tracey, taking in the superb views of the surrounding countryside and any other railway related relics along the way. Numerous views around the station at Bovey close the film.

Includes constant, well-informed commentary, reference to a vintage map and a slide show of stills.
