Last week’s Mystery Photograph evoked some fond memories for a few of our readers. This time, we were looking at Clutton Station.

Last week’s Mystery Photograph was taken at Clutton Station. (Radstock Museum)

Clutton railway station served the village from 1873 to 1959 on the Bristol and North Somerset Railway line. When it first opened, the line connected Bristol to Radstock, with services being extended to Frome later on. It was mainly used by commuters and for coal transportation to and from the Somerset Coalfield.

Thank you to Radstock Museum who supplied the photograph.

Well done to Dave Hazelton, Rebecca Bell, Simon Chard, Neil Gillard, Paul Hancock, Roy Barnes and Val Rogers.

Well done to Jeff Parsons for guessing correctly. He said: “This week the picture is of Clutton station on the former Bristol/North Somerset line and looking southward towards Radstock and Frome. The picture shows the William Clarke standard station building design, common throughout this line, with the large overhanging canopy (seemingly unsupported!), with fretted edges and also the three standard, rather ornamental chimney stacks.

“There was no footbridge and crossing the line from one platform to the other was by means of footboards placed between the rails at the southern end of the platforms.

“Pictured around 1910.”

Thanks to Mike Ford who guessed correctly and said: “This week l think you are at Clutton Railway station. This was part of the old Bristol and North Somerset line.

“I can remember catching the early train from here to travel to Bristol for work back in the 1960s.”

Richard Edwards also guessed correctly, he said: “I thought initially that this week's photo was Hallatrow Station, but on checking further I am sure it is in fact Clutton Station, looking south, on the GWR's Bristol and North Somerset Railway, which ran from Bristol to Frome via Radstock.”
