Railway Ramblers Visit Chelfham, 9th April

A large group of Railway Ramblers were on a series of organised visits in North Devon during the week.

On Wednesday 9 April, they arrived at the L&BR.  Starting first at Lynton, and having ridden on the L&B at Woody Bay, they relocated to Chelfham for more refreshments, a walk and tour of the site. Later they were able to visit the Exmoor Associates-owned site at Snapper, before moving on to Bideford to see remains of the Bideford, Westward Ho! & Appledore Railway.

1. At Chelfham after tea, biscuits and an introductory talk, the Railway Ramblers begin to walk the L&B Trust- owned trackbed.

2. Every parking space was in use as the group were off on their walk.

3. The Railway Ramblers Group, back at Chelfham viewing the restoration project.

4. The Group are given directions to Snapper before they leave Chelfham Station.
