Day trip to Barnstaple

It was another very hot day last Tuesday. What is the best thing to do? Relax in the garden or...well take a day trip to Barnstaple. Really easy from Taunton. Travel on a 125 (we will soon miss those) to Exeter St David's. Then a very quick and easy cross platform to an old GWR pacer for an easy trundle along the old southern tho Barnstaple. We paused at Eggesford tyo change tokens.

And then continued to the terminus. Although only a shadow of what it once was,  Barnstaple Junction station is endowed with southern green paint and southern signs.

There is a handy cycle hire shop where we took charge of a tandem for the cycle ride to Instow with its preserved station and signalbox.

An ice cream then a swift cycle back saw us home in time for tea.

Highly recommended!
