The view down into the cutting under Bridge 53, looking north, towards Blackmoor Gate. This stretch of the old line has been substantially cleared over the past year. Photos from the trackbed level can be seen at LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link )
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. It is hoped that this section at Bridge 53 will soon be a working part of the railway once more. One of the world’s most famous little railways, you can read more of the exciting plans for the coming years at LinkExternal link
