Avocet Line

The Avocet Line is the railway line in Devon connecting Exeter with Exmouth Link . It was originally built by the London and South Western Railway. The line follows the Exe Estuary for most of its route, giving views of the estuary. The line is named after the Pied Avocet, which live in the estuary. Opened in 1861.
