ST KEW HIGHWAY since closure

St Kew Highway station is another that is used today as a private dwelling. "Highway" tells you that this station, too, was some way from the village it served! This photograph of it was taken in 1985 when it was converted into a guest house, by Ron Strutt. St Kew Highway station

The down side waiting shelter, taken by Ron Strutt in 1985, in use as a garden and wood store, looks to be in better condition than the Austin Metropolitan 1500 parked outside! St Kew Highway station

This bridge is immediately to the north of the station and once upon a time carried the railway over the A39 road. With the widening of the road in recent years the embankment between the bridge and the station was removed so that the road can follow a faster and more sweeping route than was the case previously and tall vehicles no longer risk damage from the low height of the bridge.
