Minehead NCP Car Park mid-thirties

This postcard image of part of the Minehead, Somerset shoreline looks likely to have been taken on a busy weekend during the holiday season. The Morris Minor Two-seater approaching the NCP car park (Parking Fee 6d) is UN 6109 a late 1932 Denbigh registered vehicle. Other car registrations indicate that tourists have travelled from as far afield as Berkshire, Birmingham and the Black Country to visit the Somerset resort. Just out of shot is the terminus to the railway serving the town which at this time was operated by the GWR. The line closed under the Beeching cuts in 1971, re-opening for tourist traffic in 1976 as the West Somerset Railway.
