The Last Narrow-Gauge Railway Adventure

 

We are now open every day

FREE PARKING - DOGS WELCOME

all trains steam hauled

The miniature railway will be open most fine days during the school holidays


Steam locos Isaac and Charles Wytock haul the four Lynton & Barnstaple heritage carriages up the 1 in 50 gradient to Woody Bay Station.


We are hard at work on the project to extend the railway to Blackmoor, Wistlandpound and eventually back to Lynton - but how did we get to here? CLICK HERE to find out.

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.
