Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Bere Alston railway station is an unstaffed halt situated near the village of Bere Alston in Devon, England, 10.25 miles north of Plymouth on the branch to Gunnislake. The survival of the route is almost entirely because Bere Alston, Bere Ferrers, and Calstock are situated in an area which for geographical reasons has relatively poor road connections. Beer Alston station was opened for passenger traffic on 2 June 1890 by the Plymouth, Devonport and South Western Junction Railway as an intermediate station on that company's line from Lydford to Devonport, which - being in effect an extension of the London and South Western Railway's main line from London Waterloo station to Lydford, enabling the LSWR to reach Plymouth independently of the Great Western Railway - was immediately leased to the LSWR.show more
