Merrivale Quarry is in the heart of Dartmoor and closed down in 2003. It was a granite quarry which since falling out of use has become flooded. It has gradually been stripped and today is a bare shell except for the foundry which still has a few interesting pieces inside.

Meldon quarry station was originally constructed in the 1920s as Meldon Quarry Halt. It had no public access and functioned as a Staff Halt for Quarry Workers, their families and Railway Staff working at Meldon Quarry.


The Halt was not shown in the public railway timetable and local passenger services only called by special arrangement. A Workmans' service from Okehampton also operated during this time using a workmens' coach attached to one of the ballast trains.


A new station at Meldon Quarry was opened in 2000 by Dartmoor Railway. This was built as a single platform on a site adjacent to the former up line and situated slightly nearer to Okehampton. It is a new construction entirely unrelated to the previous Staff Halt. The station was improved in 2002 with the installation of concrete platform walling and a wooden platform shelter in BR Southern Region style and colour scheme.
