MUTLEY STATION

The Up platform of Mutley Station was opened by the Great Western Railway Company on August 1st 1871.  The Down platform followed several weeks later.

Could the gentleman on the right with a bowler hat be the Station Master?
Date unknown but it appears to be after the gauge conversion in 1892
 and before Mutley Signal Box was installed in 1896.

Because of its location near to the villas of Compton Gifford, Mannamead and Mutley, it became known as "the gentry's station".

Mutley Signal Box, opened in 1894, was situated on the Up platform.  It was taken out of use in 1908.

Mutley Station was closed to passenger traffic on or as from March 2nd 1939.
