Site of Caffyns Halt ~ Lynton & Barnstaple Railway ~ Devon
The railway formation heading south is still clear to see at the site of Caffyns Halt. Immediately behind me when I took this photograph, there is the remains of the over bridge. This has had the embankments removed from each side, which allows the construction of the bridge to be examined.
Here I am standing under the north facing side of the bridge. The south side has been blocked in to create a crude store area.
Here is another of the bridge's north portal, clearly showing how the eastern ramp has been completely cleared, and the western severely shortened (and made very steep).
And here is a view of the bridge from the south, illustrating how steep the western ramp now is - only suitable for able bodied people to ascend now!
And finally here is a view along the track formation from the top of the bridge, looking North.
The halt was intended to serve the former nearby golf course, here are the ruins of the old pavilion.
Please ask before reusing my pictures elsewhere - thanks.
