Bridestowe railway station

Bridestowe railway station
Bridestowe station was opened in October 1874 as part of the Southern Railway's Exeter to Plymouth main line. It is remembered in the 1920s and 30s as a very busy station with goods of every sort - grain, cattle etc - all passing through the station. On Saturdays, the so-called "Football train" took a great crowd of supporters to see Plymouth Argyle in action. A return trip to Plymouth cost the supporters 9 old pennies.
