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.
