Penstone, Devon

Penstone is a hamlet of some 21 houses in Devon, England, about 1 mile from the villages of Colebrooke and Coleford, close to the point where the Exeter-Barnstaple and former Exeter-Okehampton rail lines diverge; the latter is now a freight line but there has recently been talk of reopening it to passenger traffic and extending it to Plymouth in order to avoid the shoreline track at Dawlish Warren which has recently been washed away several times by winter storms.
