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

Also, this is the only steam railway in the UK that every day it is open, operates a complete set of carriages designed when Queen Victoria reigned

These historic carriages never operated anywhere other than here in North Devon


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.
