The Friends of Crewkerne Station (FOCS) remind us that it was 160 years ago on July 18th that ‘our’ railway line between Yeovil and Exeter was opened. And what a spectacular occasion it was! You can read more here.
Anniversary celebrations have had to be scaled down but the occasion won’t go unmarked.
A Community Memory Project has been set up and you are invited to contribute. Personal memories, accounts of special occasions, anecdotes, photos or poems - indeed anything you particularly remember about the station.
Spot prizes will be offered for those of notable interest or skill or simply catch the eye.
Entries will be displayed in the station waiting room and at the Town Hall before going into the station archives.
