Of course the L&B Trust is not content with carrying passengers over the section currently open and is hard at work on a project to extend the railway to Blackmoor, Wistlandpound and eventually back to Lynton.

Did you know that having a heritage railway nearby significantly boosts the local economy?

The World awaits the Possible Dream
