Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Highbridge and Burnham railway station is situated on the Bristol to Taunton Line in the town of Highbridge in Somerset, England and also serves neighbouring Burnham-on-Sea. It is unstaffed but managed by First Great Western who operate all the regular services. Until 1966 the station was also used by trains on the Somerset and Dorset Joint Railway line which crossed the main line on the level at the north end of the platforms. The station was opened as 'Highbridge' on 14 June 1841 when the Bristol and Exeter Railway opened its broad gauge line as far as Bridgwater. A road crossed the line at the north end of the platforms, and a goods shed was provided beyond this on the west side of the line. This company was amalgamated with the Great Western Railway on 1 January 1876.show more
