Halwill Junction Station (aka Halwill for Beaworthy) photographed on September 03, 1982. The station opened on January 20, 1879 and closed first to freight in 1964 and passengers on January 03, 1966. On opening the station was operated by the Devon and Cornwall Railway, then the London and Southwestern, Southern Railway, British Railways Southern Region and in the final years British Railways Western Region. The track was lifted in 1967. This view is taken from the down platform looking south towards Okehampton and shows the main station building. The platform face visible was the through down platform.  The site of the station has now been cleared and has been replaced by a housing estate.<br />
