Do you live at the east end of Bruton, Bruelands, Brue Avenue, Burrowfield, Eastfield or Cuckoo Hill? You probably know the short cut for walking to the station by Darkey Lane, not too bad in dry weather but most of the time pretty muddy! Coming to the station this way you must go into the station at the finger sign by the steel gate, and not go on through to the car park by what is a strictly private drive! If you are leaving the station, go to the far end of Platform 1, the opposite end from the car park; turn left at the end of the platform down a gravelled path and you’ll see the steel gate ahead of you; go through the gate and turn right and go on down the hill, noting that this is a private drive but you may use it at your own risk; go past the gate at the end of the tarmac drive, keep going over the bridge and up the grassy lane to the Brewham road. Most of the town is now on your left, but for Brue Avenue, Eastfield and Cuckoo Hill you need to cross the road (with extreme care as there is a blind corner to your right) and go into Brue Close and on up the hill by Brue Avenue.
