We are hard at work on the project to extend the railway to Blackmoor, Wistlandpound and eventually back to Lynton, but why is it taking so long? 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.
