What a magical little explore! Abandoned trains decaying in the woods and little station.

I can't find any history on this place, but some info here in Glynn's report: East Somerset Rolling Stock - Apr 21

We went for an explore a week after Glynns report was published and it seems something is planned for this place, as you can see all of the trees and foliage that previously surrounded the rolling stock has been cleared away.

Sun was starting to get a little low, so the later images came out a rather lovely sunkissed orange.

Firstly, we were greeted by the ex military crane at the end of the line:
