Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Barnstaple railway station is the terminus of a long branch line, known as the Tarka Line, 39 miles north west of Exeter St Davids, in Devon. It was known as Barnstaple Junction from 1874 to 1970 as it was the junction between lines to Ilfracombe, Bideford, Taunton and Exeter. A railway for goods traffic was operated from Fremington Quay, opening in August 1848. On 1 August 1854 the North Devon Railway opened from Barnstaple to Crediton. Trains were extended via Fremington to Bideford on 2 November 1855. This route was eventually extended to loop back to Okehampton via Torrington and Halwill Junction.
