History

The station was originally opened as Salterton, a terminus on the Budleigh Salterton Railway. The station was expanded in 1903 when the line was extended to Exmouth, which formed a loop.

Passenger services were withdrawn on 6 March 1967, when the Sidmouth Junction to Exmouth line was closed to all traffic (goods traffic had already been withdrawn in 1964).

Present state

The track was subsequently lifted by 1969, but the station site remained derelict but intact until the late 1970s. It was then cleared and redeveloped for housing - as such, no trace remains today.
