A - Z Projects

Lynton and Barnstable Railway is the oldest steam narrow gauge railway in the world. The Railway Trust are already operating steam trains on part of the original routes, but have ambition to ultimately re-open the whole former railway line from Lynton to Barnstable. Orion Heritage undertook a heritage assessment to support the next stage of the proposed extension of the existing steam train. This involved a site survey, discussions with the Railway Trust and close working with the Trust's rail heritage experts. Orion Heritage provided the heritage chapter for the ES.
