    R D Blackmore hated railways:

    “Blackmore …. had a prolonged battle with the London & South Western Railway Co. When he arrived, Teddington was a small rural village with an old church, and a shop or two. But by the early 1860s the railway age was arriving. The company wanted some of Blackmore’s precious land, and after a fight they got it. And close by his own new house, they built a station. Blackmore opposed them all the way, but managed to do little to stem the noise and intrusion. Maybe he did manage to prevent them building shops on Station Road, but that is about all.”

    I suspect he would be horrified by the prospect (lots more to follow) of trains passing through (and maybe stopping to discharge visitors in) Parracombe, the village on Exmoor in which all his ancestors lived.

    If the railway (and station) proposals go ahead then there should perhaps be a sign to say “this is over Blackmore’s dead body”!
