Staverton is a delightful, unspoilt country station that has remained largely unchanged for 100 years.
It is typical small wayside station that served the nearby village as well as the adjoining mill and local farms, some of which used to produce Devon cider. If you have time, stop off here and take a walk and enjoy this tranquil spot and its 15th century river bridge

Totnes Riverside Station
Our award winning station at Totnes Riverside was originally a green field, branch line trains having run into the main line station in GWR and British Railways days.
What you see today has been built up from buildings rescued from all over the West Country. For instance, the station building is from Toller Porcorum on the former GWR Bridport branch in Dorset, the canopy is from Axbridge station in Somerset and the signal box was at Cradley Heath in the West Midlands. The corrugated iron hut came from Bovey Tracey on the GWR Moretonhampstead branch in Devon and the small lamp hut came from about 20 yards away next to the site of the original Ashburton Junction signal box by the junction of our line and the main line.
From Mondays to Fridays, regular Bob The Bus ‘Hail & Ride’ buses link the main line station with the town. Check the website for times, see the posters or pick up a leaflet at our stations.
