This web camera shows the view from the corner of Minehead Signal Box looking at the end of the platform.
You can normally watch trains arrive and depart from the Main & Bay platforms. However because scaffolding has been erected around the signal box to facilitate maintenance work the view is somewhat restricted as you will see.....
