Geocache Description:

I have now re-sited the cache to the place intended,
Please bring a pen or pencil.

Thorverton railway station was on the Exe Valley Railway from Exeter St Davids to Dulverton.
It opened in 1885 on the section from Stoke Canon to Tiverton.
Thorverton was poorly served by the road and bus services with the result that the station was one of the best-used on the Exe Valley line.
The station generated a lot of goods traffic, primarily from the Thorverton Mill, a watermill that was connected by a long siding to the station.
Thorverton closed to passenger traffic with the rest of the Exe Valley line on 7 October 1963.
Goods traffic ceased on 4 May 1964. Both the station and the Stationmaster's house remain.
the Station was converted into a private home knowingly named "Beeching's Way". The raised beds can still be seen on either side of the road.
The line crossed Silver Street on a bridge, has now been removed.
