Neighbourhoods

Station Road is privately owned. The old railway tunnel begins just under the driveway to our property. The Road has a rich history connected with the railway. At our end of the lane we are one of only 4 properties. The neighbours are very friendly. We all protect the privacy of the road. If asked you simply say that you are with us at Devonbank. By turning left out of the gate you can walk a few metres and on the left is the old railway. The tunnel begin under our driveway. Although the old station is on private land, the platform is clearly visible. It's a great piece of history. Please note that the lane does not have street lights.
