The Line today

Although very little of the line can be clearly seen today, if you know where to look the route of the line can be seen in places (and sometimes walked). The Main map shows the general route, and using the Detail Maps button on any Station page, the route of the line and location of each station can be found.

To speed download times, this page has now been split into:

Northern (Portishead to Walton Park) Section

Clevedon Section

Southern (Colehouse Lane to Weston-super-Mare) Section

Tip: To help to locate the route, look for electricity sub-stations. They were often positioned on the old track bed, because generally ownership of the land was unknown after the closure of the line.

You may find the booklet: “Discover Somerset’s Lost Railway” very useful when exploring the line. It is available from the WC&P Railway Group on-line shop.
