Smith, Martin: An Illustrated History of Exmoor's Railways
Book Number: 13696
Irwell Press Clophill, Bedfordshire, England 1995 76 pages profusely illustrated b/w photos - A look at the railways of one of the South West's most attractive corners, though it ranges a little beyond the true geographical confines. The book devotes a separate section to each of the area's five railway lines, Barnstaple - Ilfracombe, Barnstaple - Taunton, Taunton - Minehead, Lynton and Barnstaple and the ancient West Somerset Mineral Railway. Considerable primary source research has been undertaken in a effort to come up with something a little different and it is hoped that the end result provides a concise, and occasionally offbeat, insight into railway operations in West Somerset and North Devon.
