Brushford Past

During the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, Brushford enjoyed the contact of the Barnstaple to Taunton and Tiverton Railway, which resulted in Lord Carnarvon building the Carnarvon Arms in the mid 19th Century. There was a thriving saw mill on the other side of the river in Exebridge and a stone quarry behind Hulverton Hill. Sadly, all have now gone.
