We are pleased to announce that our submitted planning application has been approved by North Devon Council, allowing us to demolish the existing disused timber lodge which is in a poor state of repair. A new single-storey timber lodge will be built in its place, providing the railway with an insulated building offering modern overnight accommodation facilities.

On Track Appeal – Thank you all!

Dec
17
2020

The support for our ‘On Track’ appeal has been truly excellent with over £ 55,000 contributed.

The L&BR has been very fortunate in obtaining various funding grants to help with recovery from Covid which overall should put the finances in good order for 2021.

It has been decided that this would be a good time to close the ‘On Track’ appeal. The aims have been met and the response was heart-warming.

There will be a couple of new funding appeals in the New Year with some exciting – and longed-for - news and progress to be announced shortly.
