This was a small country station on the Bristol to Exeter main line. After closure on October 5 1964, a small railway museum was established in the goods yard and called the Yieldingtree Railway Museum. This had been closed for quite a while when visited, but the yard gates were open on this fine September evening, so a sneak explore ensued. Happily, all the items were eventually removed for preservation elsewhere.
