Bridport: Believe it or not, when I took this photo of Bridport station in March 1975 it was still open to passengers although the building was obsolete, passengers accessing the platform from a path alongside the building. Time was running out for this picturesque branch line as it closed two months later on 5th May 1975. A supermarket, alas, now stands on the site.
