Les King - Requiescat In Pace

Sadly, we have received the news that L&BR Life Member Les King passed away Thursday 6th September.

Les joined the Lynton & Barnstaple Railway Association back in the 1980s and served as a committee member, Together with his late wife Cathy, he played a significant role in the opening, organising and operation of the L&B's Signal Box Museum - formerly Barnstaple Town mainline Signal Box.

Les was one of several that kept the dream alive in those early years and without their efforts we would not have the splendid railway that we have today.


Vanessa, Les’s daughter has advised that his funeral will be at Barnstaple Crematorium on Monday 24 September at 12.10. The collection will be donated to the L&B.

The funeral directors have asked that everyone is there by 12.00.

Please pass this information on to anyone you feel would wish to know.
