Wrangaton Signal Box
Interior view

This signal box was formerly situated at Wrangaton in Devon, in the area of the former GWRGreat Western Railway main line known as the ‘South Devon Banks’. The line from Totnes climbs Rattery Bank to the summit at Wrangaton, before descending Hemerdon Bank to reach Plymouth.

The box is gradually being restored to full working order in a project which commenced circa 2005. The GWRGreat Western Railway 19 lever frame came from a signal box at Bersham Colliery Sidings near Wrexham.

The box was opened to the public for the first time in June 2015.
