History

Opened on 3rd August 1869 and closed to goods traffic on 10th June 1963 and passengers on 9th September the same year. An original Bristol & Exeter Railway signal box was replaced by a new one on 14th July 1907. The route of the railway is now the A371 Axbridge bypass but luckily the station buildings and goods shed still survive.
