The Last Narrow-Gauge Railway Adventure



 

THIS MONTH

open every day!

We are the only steam railway in the UK where on every journey, passengers travel in Victorian railway carriages designed in the 1890's

These unique historic carriages cannot be seen anywhere other than here in North Devon



At 964 feet above sea level, Woody Bay is the highest railway station in Southern England
and home of the World's only new-build American steam engine LYN


OUR NEXT OBJECTIVE!


We are hard at work on the project to extend the railway to Blackmoor, Wistlandpound and eventually back to Lynton

Did you know that having a heritage railway nearby significantly boosts the local economy?

Social Enterprise in Action
More than eighty years after its closure in 1935, you can once more board a train of original L&B carriages at England's highest narrow-gauge railway station - the delightfully named Woody Bay Station - 1,000 feet up on wild Exmoor.
Operated almost entirely by volunteers, we are a "non-profit" organisation owned by its members with the mission to fully restore the legendary Lynton & Barnstaple Railway.
