Pilton Yard, in the village of Pilton, to the North of Barnstaple was, between 1895 and 1935, the main depot and operating centre of the Lynton and Barnstaple Railway (‘L&B’), a narrow-gauge line that ran through Exmoor from Barnstaple to Lynton and Lynmouth in North Devon, England. Goods facilities were also provided at Pilton, but passengers were catered for at the nearby LSWR station, Barnstaple Town, which provided connections with trains on the standard gauge branch line to Ilfracombe. The L&B’s main offices were also based at Pilton, in a building formerly belonging to the Tannery which had earlier occupied the site, and which took over the site after the railway closed.
