At 964 feet above sea level, Woody Bay is the highest railway station in Southern England!

Part of the beautiful Lynton & Barnstaple narrow gauge railway in North Devon.

The Woody Bay Station building was designed by Jones of Lynton, in a similar style to Lynton Town Hall. Now, more than 80 years after its closure (in 1935) you can once more board a train and enjoy a trundle along a short stretch of countryside in original coaches.

Woody Bay Station is operated almost entirely by volunteers – they are a “non-profit” organisation owned by its members with the mission to fully restore the legendary Lynton & Barnstaple Railway – read more about their campaign HERE!

The Station is situated on the edge of the stunning Exmoor National Park and many walk and pleasurable drives can be had there.

What you can see today at Woody Bay Station is just the beginning of an exciting project to rebuild one of the world’s most famous and picturesque narrow gauge railways; the legendary Lynton & Barnstaple Railway!

The route will eventually take the visitor along to Blackmoor Gate Station, over the mighty Chelfham Viaduct, via Snapper Halt and on towards Barnstaple itself.
