Our final report for this year includes a warning about what we need to achieve to enable us to purchase more sections of trackbed in 2017, as well as images depicting the recent work undertaken on the platform footpath, and the necessary clearance of yet more debris from the River Yeo.
The Packhorse Bridge
During the preparation of this News Update, it was realised that we know very little about the history of Packhorse Bridge which crosses the River Yeo at Snapper. We’d really welcome receiving any information about the historical aspects of the bridge.
Please see the ‘Contact Us‘ for options of how we can be contacted.

APPEAL FOR FUNDS FOR FURTHER TRACKBED PURCHASES
2017 is likely to be a year of opportunity for Exmoor Associates as we find ourselves on the verge of acquiring more Lynton & Barnstaple Railway sections of trackbed.
We are currently in communication with a number of land owners who all appear to be favourable about selling their sections of L&BR trackbed to us next year. Obviously we can only acquire these sections of land if we have the available funds to do so.
Unfortunatly we do NOT have all the necessary money in place at this time, so it is essential that we ‘top-up’ our funds in preparation for these expected purchases. Can you help us claw back some of this much needed L&BR trackbed?
Please spare a few moments to view the ‘Support Us‘ page, or go to the ‘Contact Us‘ page if you require further information.
