Look for us on the Tarka Trail!

Both Instow and Bideford sites are on the old railway line from Barnstaple. This is now the very popular Tarka Trail that follows the River Torridge beside the B3233. Many of our visitors use the trail to come to see us, either by foot or by bike. You can hire a bike at various points along the trail.


Bideford station is on the east side of the historic longbridge, in East-the-Water.


Instow signal box is at the south end of Marine Parade in Instow.


For visitors with SatNav Bideford station's postcode is EX39 4BB and Instow signalbox's is EX39 4HW. Car parking is available a short walk from both sites.
