Exmoor Associates – Securing trackbed for the Lynton & Barnstaple Railway

Exmoor Associates was set up in 2002 by a small group as a private limited company to purchase and maintain available land on the route of the former Lynton & Barnstaple Railway. In 2021 the company was converted to a Community Interest Company.

We are all fully committed to the principle of a fully restored railway between Barnstaple and the coastal town of Lynton & Lynmouth. The primary objective of the company is the purchase of trackbed for phase three between Blackmoor and Barnstaple, to ensure that it will remain available for railway use in the future.

For those that know our company, they may already be familiar with some of the sections we own including Snapper Halt, Collard Bridge and Bratton Fleming Station. We remain in the process of negotiating for the acquisition of further lengths of trackbed and sections of land at various locations along the route of the former Lynton & Barnstaple Railway.

You too can be part of this exciting visionary project for North Devon…
