Exmoor Associates is pleased to announce the purchase of an estimated 407 yard (18½ chains) section of trackbed between Collard Bridge (Bridge 18) and Northleigh Bridge (Bridge 19). The new section is opposite Collard Bridge Farm on the other side of the River Yeo and closely follows the course of the Goodleigh Road, bridging the gap between EA’s Collard Bridge and the Northleigh Plantation trackbeds. The new trackbed is heavily overgrown with vegetation which will require considerable effort to remove as the photographs below testify.
Purchasing the many pieces of the former Lynton & Barnstaple Railway back together is very hard
work, and we only have limited funds with which to do it. If you would like to help us with future
acquisitions, please spare a few moments to view the “Support Us” page on this website.
