DESTINATIONS.....

Meeth Halt Station
This is the disused Meeth Halt Station in the county of Devon. All the rail track has been ripped up and the old track bed now forms part of the Tarka Trail long distance footpath and cycle trail....
The small sign on the side of the station building lists the destinations as Torington 11, Bideford 16 and Barnstaple 24. 
Those distances are miles and not kilometres of course this being the UK.

It almost looks new.

If that station could talk then it would have many stories to tell. Nostalgic image.

The give away of course is the signs of nature starting to reclaim the building at the far end. In actual fact the station was first opened in 1925.

I'm sure it would Ari...Thanks for your visit and comments.

In my opinion, there' something deeply honest in walking - would love to discover it there.

Please have a good Tuesday.
