Feniton station sign

Feniton is a small station on the South West Main Line between Whimple and Honiton, and the place it serves seemed to be vying for the Most Helpful Village award; within minutes of arriving there and planning a short walk two people came up to us offering directions!

As well as a ticket window, the station building houses Feniton Crossing signalbox. Locals would often pop by to say hello in spite of the no admittance notice on the door:
