2/18 Former Toilet Block and Water
Tower at south end of Charfield
Toilet block, circa 1843-44; water tower, now used as offices, mid - late C19.
The toilet block is 15 yards south of the booking hall and waiting room (q.v.):
brick, slate roof with overhanging bracketted eaves and coped raised verges on
kneelers; single storey with 2 single-light casement windows in chamfered
surrounds. The water tower is immediately south of the former stationmaster's
house (q.v.): brick lower storey with two 2-light cross windows with ashlar
mullions and surrounds, central plank door; above is the iron water tank with
panelled and ribbed sides. The buildings at Charfield Station form the only
surviving intact group of buildings on the line - an important line which
completed the through route from Exeter to Newcastle in 1844. (Buchanan L.A.
