Geocache Description:

Mortehoe Railway Station.

The station was opened in 1874 and served the villages of Mortehoe and Woolacombe. It was on the London & South Western Railway, Ilfracombe Branch Line between Barnstaple and Ilfracombe in North Devon and known as Mortehoe until 13 May 1902 when it became Mortehoe and Woolacombe railway station. The station was immortalised in the song "Slow Train” by Flanders and Swann. It was closed to passengers in October 1970 when the branch line closed.
