From Evercreech village the trackbed can still be traced, but yet again it is on private land as it heads south-west for about ¾ mile where it crossed the A371 road on a bridge. The bridge has been dismantled but the abutments are still there. The line then continued for several hundred yards before sweeping in a tight curve to head south-east again to enter Evercreech Junction.

The station at Evercreech Junction stood at an angle adjacent to the A371 road which it crossed on a level crossing, the gates being at the eastern end of the platforms. The main station buildings were on the down platform and several of them still exist, now occupied as private dwellings. The yard on the down side, which once contained a goods shed, a one ton crane and a seven ton crane, is now a small trading estate. Nothing remains of the level crossing gates or of the footbridge which stood at the end of the platforms next to the gates.

Station buildings at Evercreech Junction, 2001

The remaining station buildings at Evercreech Junction in May 2001, now private residences. This picture is taken from the entrance to the trading estate which now occupies the former station yard. The platforms and trackbed would have been on the other side of these buildings, but this area is now private gardens.

"The Railway Hotel" now "The Natterjack"

“The Natterjack” at one time “The Railway Hotel”. The level crossing gates would have been just beyond the large tree at the end of the car park and the signal box occupied a position behind the tree.

May 2001.

“The Railway Hotel” which stood alongside the station on the ‘up’ platform side is still in existence although it is now renamed “The Natterjack”. When the railway closed the name was changed to “The Silent Whistle” but it was changed again to “The Natterjack” in the late 1970’s.
