Update - not quite Chelfham, but close!


Roadworks TriangleAnother new location!

Nigel Thompson has sent us this brief update regarding the trackbed between Chelfham Viaduct and Goodleigh Road Bridge. We now have a licence from Highways England for the trackbed immediately south of Chelfham viaduct. Only 260 yards, but it is a part of the old BRB Property holding – including Chelfham Viaduct - that is reserved for our use when we are ready to adopt it. 

Given that the Secretary of State signed the licence, we are at least now on their radar!
