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

The World awaits the Possible Dream

 More than 78 years after the railway's closure, 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.
 
Run almost entirely by volunteers, we are a "non-profit" organisation owned by its Members with the mission to fully restore as much as we can of the legendary Lynton & Barnstaple Railway.

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