Ivybridge station was opened in July 1994 about 1/2 mile east of the original GWR station which closed in 1959. The station is on the main Paddington to Penzance line but is not serviced by Cross Country at present. The station is serviced by First Great Western. See websites page for links to this company
Ivybridge is a town that has grown in the last 25 years from a small town of around 1,000 inhabitants to approximately 13,000 with new housing estates at both the east end and west end of the town. It is situated between the A38 dual carriageway and the southern edge of Dartmoor where the main rail line runs.
Ivybridge is sometimes referred to as the gateway to the moors and is at the southern end of the Two Moors Way.
