Short description: 
A great welcome at this old station building cafe on Cranmore Stati.on nr Shepton Mallet on East Somerset Railway formerly part of Cheddar Valley Line which met with Somerset & Dorset Railway at Wells
Description: 

On a cycling day out around Shepton Mallet en route to Kilver Court Gardens under the great railway viaduct, we came across this charming station cafe at Cranmore on the East Somerset Heritage Railway, perchance on a 'steam-up' day.  As usual with cyclists, we were up for a full cooked breakfast and werent disappointed  though leave room for the homemade cakes and coffee.  We visited the shop up the steps to the platform and our timing was good as shortly after the cafe was inundated with hundreds arriving by motor vehicle to enjoy the 2.5mile trip on a steam train that day.  As always, the unexpected is twice the delight.
