Did you know that having a heritage railway nearby significantly boosts the local economy?

The World awaits the Possible Dream

Eighty years after its closure in 1935, you can once more board a train of original L&B coaches at England's highest narrow-gauge railway station - the delightfully named Woody Bay Station - 1,000 feet up on wild Exmoor.
 
Operated almost entirely by volunteers, we are a "non-profit" organisation owned by its Members with the mission to fully restore the legendary Lynton & Barnstaple Railway.

At 964 feet above sea level, Woody Bay is the highest railway station in Southern England.
