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.
