FINAL PUSH TO COMPLETE THE APPEAL TO FUND BRIDGES 54 & 55

The "Last Train" at Bridge No.55



Phase IIA of the reconstruction of the Lynton & Barnstaple Railway between Blackmoor Gate and Wistlandpound Reservoir required the re-instatement and repair of two bridges, No.s 54 and 55.

A big and sincere thank-you to all donors who have contributed to the Bridge 54/55 Appeal. If you haven’t donated yet the Appeal is still open. To date we have raised over £50,000 and donations still continue to be received. Grant funding boosts this total to over £110,000 so the gap is betting smaller! This appeal aims to raise £160,000 to complete the reinstatement - some of which can be provided by Gift Aid so please sign the Gift Aid Declaration.

Whilst the bridges themselves are complete the appeal is still open and for anyone who hasn’t contributed now is your chance. Every penny counts!

Thank-you as always for your support

Jon Pain
