New DVD "Flying the L&B"

With news of our Planning Applications imminent we are putting together ideas in pursuit of the required funding of the expansion of the railway. We intend to produce a DVD of a low-level flyover of the route of the planned extension of the railway all the way from Woody Bay to Wistlandpound. This new footage is to be combined with archive cine, photos as well as a commentary.

As you will appreciate, there is quite a cost to this - total amount to be raised is £3,500 for the filming and editing costs plus the production costs of the DVD.

PLEASE NOTE: As we wish to give a FREE copy of the DVD to all sponsors/subscribers, we have been advised that if we also wish to claim Gift Aid, the minimum contribution has to be £40 to qualify. But please do contribute more if you can.

One again our thanks for your support of the project to extend the railway. Together we can do this.

Filming is now completed and being edited/assembled in advance of the commentary being added.
