The platform at Moretonhampstead has been dug up today as part of a new development. I understand the goods she'd is to be saved as part of this scheme. Sad to see the station site progress to being less recognisable but I suppose any development on 'brownfield' land is better than expanding the town into the countryside.

I stayed in Moretonhampstead for a few days last week, and when driving past the site of the old station noticed some changes. Thompsons the haulage firm have relinquished much of the site.

Although we did not walk along the Wray Valley on this visit I did take some photos. After our visit to the Haytor Granite Tramway I walked from the hotel down to the station and took a few photos.

The housing development is advertised as Hingston View.

Now that various buildings have been demolished and lorries moved it was possible to get a shot of the loco shed from this side, I had previously photographed it from the Wray Valley Trail which passes on the far side of the site.
