In days gone by
But here's three little gems I took at Williton on Easter Sunday 27-3-1978.
The line was only open from Minehead to Williton at the time. But what a stark contrast the scene was then,compared to what is there nowadays.
It just goes to show how things have moved on over the years since 1978.
Enjoy, cheers JOHN C. We will enjoy, many thanks John
