Exmoor Associates – Securing trackbed for the Lynton & Barnstaple Railway
Exmoor Associates has been set up by a small group as a private limited company to purchase and maintain available land on the route of the former Lynton & Barnstaple Railway. 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 to ensure that it will remain available for railway use in the future, enabling the full return of steam trains in Exmoor and North Devon.
For those that know our company, they may already be familiar with the first of our sections of land, Collard Bridge, as this remains one of our company’s flagship sites. We are at present also in the process of negotiating for the acquisition of several further lengths of trackbed and sections of land at various locations along the route of the former Lynton & Barnstaple Railway.
