Opened in 1898 and built to a gauge of one foot eleven and a half inches (600mm), the railway closed in 1935. What you can see now at Woody Bay is the first phase in rebuilding one of the world's most famous and picturesque narrow gauge railways; the legendary Lynton & Barnstaple Railway. A one mile section has now been reopened allowing visitors to travel by train along the original 'L&B Railway' route above the Heddon Valley near Parracombe in South West England's Exmoor National Park. The railway is owned by a charitable trust, and almost all work is carried out by unpaid volunteers. The eventual aim is to re-open the entire 19 miles between Lynton and Barnstaple.

Electric wheelchairs can be accommodated around the site, but not in the station buildings or on the trains. Manual wheelchairs are fine. All parking is on site and free.
