Chapelton (Station Code  CPN)

Newton St. Cyres and Chapelton, the first and last stations along the line, have something in common:  minimal weekday train service and little of interest to welcome the alighting passenger. Newton St. Cyres, to its credit, boasts an excellent trackside pub; Chapelton only a saw mill. To compensate for these omissions, the scenery is delightful. Just the “down” platform remains at Chapelton today, the former station house and the old “up” platform now sequestered and secure behind a private fence.

Chapelton’s early history was somewhat chequered.  The North Devon railway line opened to traffic in 1854, but no passenger facilities were available here until 1857 when the station opened as Chapeltown.  Just over three years later, it shut its doors for 15 years, reopening (as Chapelton) only in March 1875.

Apart from nearby
parking, the station offers no facilities.
