Barnstaple Town Station ~ Lynton & Barnstaple Railway ~ Devon
The Lynton & Barnstaple Railway shared the Town station with the London & South Western Railway, whose line from Barnstaple Junction Station crossed the River Taw on a curved viaduct into Barnstaple Town station and then on to Ilfracombe. This line too is now closed and the viaduct across the river has been demolished; many would say this has been a major improvement in the view from the quay as the viaduct was not an architectural gem!
Here is the station, now a restaurant, on 12th July 2003.
Behind the building, a remnant of the station canopy still remains.
Please ask before reusing my pictures elsewhere - thanks.
