Yeovil Junction sign

Yeovil Junction is one of two extant stations serving Yeovil, the other being Yeovil Pen Mill. The junction in the station's name was once with a branch to Yeovil Town, but now the only remaining junction is that with the line between Castle Cary and Weymouth Town.

The approach up to the station from the road:

The station approach leads to the car park, and thence to the footbridge to provide access to the island platforms:

The alternative to the footbridge is the barrow crossing, seen here in this view west from the footbridge, with the car park on the right:

The station buffet entrance is on platform 2, but it was closed due to staff sickness when we visited:

At the eastern end of the platform is this clock. Wrong, of course!
