A typical Great Western Railway wayside halt...

Doniford is not one of the original stations.

It was built in 1988 to serve the nearby holiday complex.The curving platform has one end under the skew arch bridge carrying the coast road the Watchet.

The platform is made from precast concrete sections of 1930s vintage, which came from Montacute Station on the long-closed Taunton to Yeovil line.

A GWR corrugated iron pagoda building has been obtained from Cove on the former Exe Valley line in Devon, and erected on the platform to serve as a waiting room.

According to very early working timetables, a siding existed on the up side, but no trace or map of this feature has been found.

Please note there is no car park at Doniford.
