Our normal opening times at Bideford are from 10.30 to 4pm every weekend until the end of October half-term, and daily during school holidays.  We would also hope to open on other days throughout this period if the weather's nice!  Unfortunately, at the moment we are having to repair the vandalism to our coach so there will be some delay in getting back to this normal situation.  Please bear with us.   However we will definitely be open on Wednesday mornings when our working parties are present.


We hope to open Instow signalbox on Monday mornings from Easter to October when volunteers are available.


Want to volunteer with us?


Working parties are held on Wednesdays from 10 a.m.

Email us at if you'd like to join us, or just come along.


When we are not open our sites are still accessible from the Tarka Trail.
