A post card view of The opening of the Culm Valley Light Railway in May 1876
An early post card view of Hemyock Station with the River Culm in the foreground.
Milk factory workers clearing snow from the rails beside Hemyock Station in 1963 to enable the train to reach the factory and take the milk away. The factory had converted to oil to fuel the boilers and the oil storage tanks can be seen in the background.
Amazing photo of the opening of the Hemyock Railway Line in 1873.
Engine leaving Hemyock Station with last passenger train leaving in 1963.
The front horse and cart is from Castle Farm Hemyock with others after delivering milk churns to station. The building is the Engine and Wagon shed at the station.
This picture of a steam train standing at Uffculme is undated.
The quality of the image makes it very difficult to find clues – unless of course you are an expert on the Culm Valley Railway.
Do you know anything about this train? If so, please tell us.
The Culm Valley Railway lines heading towards the feed mill at Uffculme. We have contacted Lloyd Maunder to see if they can offer us any help on establishing some more information about this photo. They seemed very helpful when we called them and we await their reply.
We know the family business began in 1898, although Lloyd’s father, FJP Maunder, was in the meat trade around 1879, in Witheridge, Devon.
Some more about their history can be found on the Lloyd Maunder website.
