A look at part of the former branch lines to Torrington. The former London South Western branch from Barnstaple to Torrington was closed to passengers in October 1965. The former Southern branch from Torrington to Halwill Junction was closed to passengers in March 1965,following the Beeching report of 1963,with the section from Meeth to Barnstaple being retained for goods until September 1982. Following track lifting Devon County Council purchased the track bed for use as a footpath/cycleway that became known as the Tarka Trail.
