16 March 2008 - Shillingstone

A visit to the Shillingstone Station restoration project on a wet Sunday morning.


The old station at Shillingstone is currently undergoing restoration. The station used to serve the Somerset and Dorset railway. This is a project scheduled to take 5 years. For more information on the project follow this link.


There is a small shop selling railway memorabilia.


Some more views.
