Stourpaine and Durweston Halt in 1982

Stourpaine and Durweston Halt stood on the Somerset and Dorset main line between Blandford Forum and Shillingstone.

It opened in 1928 and closed in 1956, a decade before the whole line went.

I took these photographs of its remains in the summer of 1982.

I visited this halt in 1977 and it was much the same as in your photo, I think the station name board was still in position, the area was a bit less overgrown too.
