Long Description:
The railway line runs between Tavistock and Okehampton some 9 miles long, where connections could be made to other areas across the country.

These huts were small "home stations" for a gang of workmen who maintained a 3 mile stretch of the rail line (one and half miles either side of the hut)
The huts were used for shelter and rest

The disused rail line is now a bridle way and cycle path.
