Blue Anchor Station
The small settlement at Blue Anchor grew up after the railway arrived there in 1874, and as seaside holidays became more popular. The beach is just across the road from the station. The dominating feature of Blue Anchor station is the level crossing at the Minehead end where large gates block the road when trains are due, all controlled in the traditional way by the signalman turning a very large wheel up in the ‘box'.
There is a small museum in the building on the platform for Minehead bound trains, which is open on Sundays, Bank Holidays and during Galas. Eating and drinking wise there is the Driftwood Café, the Smugglers Inn and the Blue Anchor Hotel.
