The single-track railway to Sidmouth from the mainline at Sidmouth Junction, via Tipton St John, crosses the east flank of Bulverton Hill with embankments alternating with cuttings. How good the view must have been from this steam railway where the vegetation on the embankment was kept clear due the fire hazard.

Railway Station - pin on goods shed. The loco shed is behind left and the station building in the trees behind the cluster of roofs and chimneys. As was so often the case the station was a fair distance from the town. Here by choice of the locals, who did not wish the railway to be close enough to bring in the trippers as at Exmouth or Seaton.

Sidmouth Station was opened in 1874, and closed in 1967. See http://www.disused-stations.org.uk/s/sidmouth/index.shtml for more information about the station and photos of it before and after closure. (This site points out that to get nearer the town centre a fairly steep gradient would have needed - it may have been this practical consideration that kept the railway where it was.)
