Shoscombe and Single Hill Halt

Station opened - 23rd September 1929

Station closed to all traffic - 7th March 1966

Grid Ref: 172 ST 718561

Shoscombe and Single Hill Halt was a two platform halt serving the nearby village. Both platforms were constructed of pre-fabricated concrete sections and had no shelters, but both platforms were lit by gas lamps. Access to the platforms was from footpaths either side of the adjacent road bridge.
There was a small ticket office and waiting room located at the end of the down platform footpath leading towards the village. In true Somerset and Dorset style, this was staffed by two sisters for the 37 years of the halts existence!
