All members of the Lynton & Barnstaple Railway Trust share a passion for the railway and all are obviously anxious to see its continued ongoing success. However there are three difficulties that some members who reside beyond easy travelling distance of Woody Bay may encounter:
Many members want the satisfaction of doing something beyond the payment of an Annual Subscription, to overcome these difficulties, the Surrey Area Group of the Lynton & Barnstaple Railway Trust was formed in February 1991 to bring together those members who reside within the County of Surrey and the surrounding area for the purpose of promoting and supporting the Trust's efforts to restore, reopen and operate the railway in Devon.
This is achieved in a number of ways including:
We raise awareness and the much needed funds by attending local exhibitions and shows in and around the Surrey, area. Our third aim benefits many of our members who are more able and can participate in a planned activity that is organised for them sometimes in Devon - but not always.
We are always keen to hear from new members who reside within the County of Surrey or the immediate surrounding areas. If you are a member of the Lynton & Barnstaple Railway Trust and resident within our locality, then why not join us to support our railway. Member's receive three copies of "Tablet Magazine" each year, either by post or email (your choice). By joining the Group you have nothing to loose, but everything to gain.
