The L&B and the Lyn Valley Classic

Jun
18

On Sunday June 10th volunteers from the L&B helped the organisers of the Lyn Valley Classic - North Devon's biggest car show - by laying out and operating their Park and Ride service in Lynton. It was the perfect opportunity to support our local community, and promote our railway . Over 400 visitors used the P&R  and received copies of our own timetable as well as that for the main event.

We made a great impression and helped Lynton  & Lynmouth run one of their most successful shows ever.
