What’s on along the line
Bideford Railway Heritage

Nearest  station - Barnstaple

Bideford Railway Heritage Centre manages the Bideford station site and Instow signal box, which are both on the old railway line from Barnstaple to Bideford in North Devon. The railway line is now part of the popular Tarka Trail and so the two sites provide points of interest to cyclists and walkers alike, as well as to the more general visitor. There is a museum at Bideford and also tearooms.

The Dartmoor Railway runs from Mid-Devon to the edge of Dartmoor, providing car free access to the Dartmoor National Park for walkers and cyclists.
