The view of the course of the old railway towards Barnstaple from Bridge 35 “Button Hill Bridge”.
The railtracks here are not the original L&B track, but a privately-owned 2 foot narrow gauge railway, which runs for about a quarter of a mile.
The Lynton & Barnstaple Railway was a 19 mile long narrow gauge railway, which ran across the stunning Exmoor landscape, from 1898, until its closure in 1935. In 2004, after many years of hard work and negotiation, a small section was re-opened. One of the world’s most famous little railways, you can read more of the exciting plans for the coming years at LinkExternal link
