Glastonbury Goods Yard


Glastonbury boasted a fair sized goods yard, with traffic included domestic coal, timber, agricultural supplies, and general goods. A daily goods train arrived from Highbridge mid-morning, shunted the yard, and usually continued towards Evercreech. In the final year, it often returned to Highbridge.

A daily evening perishables train ('the Milkie') also passed through Glastonbury on its way from Highbridge to Templecombe. Any traffic from Glastonbury was normally loaded in the station.
