History

Shillingstone Station was built and opened by The Somerset & Dorset Railway on 31st August 1863. The S&DR came into existence on 1 September 1862 as a result of the amalgamation of the Dorset Central Railway and the Somerset Central Railway. At the time of the amalgamation, the Dorset central line ran from Wimborne Minster to Blandford Forum and from Templecombe to Cole near Bruton leaving a gap between Blandford Forum and Templecombe. The newly formed Somerset and Dorset railway filled the gap in the summer of 1863 with one of the new stations in the gap being at Shillingstone.The station remained open until 1966.Restoration work started in 2006, and in the years the main building has been repaired, a replica signal box with a correct Stevens frame and tablet machines has been constructed by volunteers. The Porters office was reconstructed, and the Parcels office has been restored. Track was laid in the loading dock and between the platforms. This work here is almost done

Paranormal activity:

There have been sights of shadows lurking round corners and dancing on the tracks!Objects being thrown then nowhere to be seen! Sounds of chatter and whistles! In 1912 a fatal accident occurred when a local man was unfortunately crushed to death on the track! Is he one of the shadows that are regularly seen………
