Geocache Description:

Thornford Railway Station

Thornford railway station serves the villages of Thornford and Beer Hackett, four miles to the south-west of Sherborne. It is managed by Great Western Railway and is served by trains on the Heart of Wessex Line between Bristol Temple Meads and Weymouth. The un-manned station is a request stop, where passengers signal the driver or ask the guard on the train to arrange for the train to stop if they wish to alight.

The station was opened by the Great Western Railway on 23rd March 1936 as Thornford Bridge Halt. It was renamed in the 1960s to its present shorter name.
