Ashbury and Northlew



Opened with the first phase of the line and served the hamlet of Ashbury and the village of Northlew in the English county of Devon.


It was a passing point on the single track line with an engine shed which was retained as a workshop for a small local coach company at the time of our visit in 2013 and may well still be today.
