Lynton & Barnstaple Steam Railway
Journey back in time to a long forgotten age on Devon’s most popular narrow-gauge railway.
The legendary Lynton & Barnstaple Railway was originally opened in 1898, and then closed in 1935 – what you can see today at Woody Bay is just the beginning of an exciting project to rebuild one of the world’s most famous and picturesque narrow gauge railways.
Today our visitors can experience a taste of what will one day become one of the ultimate narrow gauge treasures of the world. Travel by train along the original route above the delightful Heddon Valley in Exmoor’s National Park.
But the L&B is much more than a visitor attraction, we are an educational charity with a living classroom promoting an understanding of the transport systems of the past and their affect on the rural community living on the remotest and wildest parts of Exmoor. Today it is owned by the Members of the L&BR Trust and run almost entirely by volunteers.
