Tarka Valley Railway
The Tarka Valley Railway is a heritage railway line that regales in the nostalgia of a bygone era of British railway travel
Located in Station, Station Hill, Great Torrington, Torrington EX38 8JD, UK, this narrow-gauge line recovered from an overgrown state and, after years of successful restoration, was re-opened to the public in 2008
Now visitors can board the historic train and enjoy the scenic views of the surrounding Taw Valley as they pass Morwellham Quay, the Victorian industrial port, Meeth Halt station and Eggesford station
Prior to the heritage railway service’s re-opening, the line was used as part of Britain’s “Great Central Railway” and is now preserved as an attraction to visitors of all ages
