Woody Bay Station
England's only Victorian Steam Railway .Woody Bay Station is an original Lynton &Barnstaple Railway station, opened in 1898, and closed along with the rest of the railway in September 1935. Purchased in 1995, 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;the legendary Lynton &Barnstaple Railway.
The ideal starting point for a two mile round trip through some of the loveliest countryside in North Devon, Woody Bay Station is the place to board our little narrow-gauge train for a journey back to Victorian times.
All trains run to Killington Lane Halt - a distance of about a mile - where you can if you wish, leave the train and walk to other local destinations - including the lovely local village of Parracombe, home to our nearest Pub - the Fox &Goose (open most days - but best to check first). Alternatively for those with more stamina - the Hunters Inn at Heddons Mouth is also highly recommended. When you are ready, walk back to Killington Lane Halt and catch a later train back to Woody Bay.
Alternatively, stay on the train for the much more exciting return journey behind a hard-working steam engine up one of the steepest steam railway gradients in the country.
Time to spare? As your ticket permits you to travel as many times as you wish on the day, several of our visitors come to the station in the morning - have a train ride, something to eat or drink and then go on to visit somewhere else. Later in the day they come back for another trip. Works very well for those families whose children need to be persuaded to leave!
You can stay on site or on our trains for as long as you like all day at no extra charge. www.lynton-rail.co.uk.
