Lynton & Barnstaple Railway
Woody Bay Station
Woody Bay is the headquarters and the main station on the revived section of the Lynton & Barnstaple Railway. The station is located about 3 miles from Lynton. The line runs for a short distance to Killington Lane but it is hoped to gradually restore greater lengths of the line. Services are operated regularly during the summer months.
Approaching Woody Bay
The narrow gauge line between Lynton and Barnstaple closed in 1935 but efforts to reinstate this picturesque route began in 1995.
