Out at work so no Finn with me today. Where's this former station site? Not much to go on, so there will be a clue in a few hours if it's not guessed.

You're reading it upside down. It's an advert for this band:

Clue time. A very nearly poisonous terminus.

Hemyock?

That it be. Well done!

Hemyock was the end of the line of the Culm Valley Light Railway in Devon which ran from Tiverton Junction via Uffculme and Culmstock. The line closely followed the River Culm. It closed to passengers in 1963, but continued to see milk tanker trains until 1975, serving the large dairy in Hemyock. That dairy was once part of Unigate, producing butter, and later spreads under the St Ivel brand. It closed in the 1990s and is now a housing estate.

The station was across the road in my picture. I'm stood in the approximate location of a level crossing where the line crossed the road to serve the dairy, which would have been behind me.
