EXMOOR'S AWARD WINNING RAILWAY


Call for Gala Car-Park Crew

We are on the lookout for extra hands to help man our car parks on both days of the May Gala (12th-13th May).

We warmly welcome new and existing volunteers as well as provide the required hi-viz jackets, free gala entry, even tea and coffee! We roster 3 shifts per day in each of the two car parks, as well as our popular "Bus Captains".

This year we will be running 2 buses between Woody Bay and Blackmoor Gate so will need quite a few welcoming characters. In total we have over 50 duties to allocate - each shift is just for two and a half hours. But you can do more should you wish!  This is an active and outdoor role (in our lovely Exmoor climate!).

Please email if you think you might be able to help.


OPEN Tuesday to Thursday & Saturday & Sunday

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

Social Enterprise in Action
More than eighty years after its closure in 1935, you can once more board a train of original L&B carriages 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.
