Chelfham CLOSED October 2018 UPDATE


We regret to have to announce that due to unforeseen circumstances, Chelfham Station site has been closed for the immediate future.

The site has been closed for safety reasons and will remain closed until at least a full inspection by a suitably qualified person has provided a report to the board. Other action will then follow.

No access is permitted either for the public or for members of the Lynton & Barnstaple Railway Trust, unless specifically authorised by a director of the Lynton & Barnstaple Railway Company.

With the uncertainty regarding the granting of planning permission by Exmoor National Park behind us, now is the time to make a share purchase.

The share offer is still open, but only for the short period until negotiations are completed - so if you intend to join us, please leave it no longer.

Alternatively, if you have thought about supporting the acquisition of the Old Station House Inn but do not wish to buy shares, why not make a donation - all support is appreciated.

Several years ago, the L&BR commenced work to build a replica of ‘YEO’ a Manning, Wardle locomotive that ran on the railway from 1898 until closure in 1935. This earlier project was put on hold until the construction of ‘LYD’ at the Ffestiniog Railway was completed and operational. More detail HERE
