Our normal site opening times at Bideford are from 10.00am to 3.00pm every weekend from Easter 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! 

There may be occasional days when we can't open so check if we're open when you want to visit by visiting Facebook Cafe in the Coach on the left-hand panel.


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


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


Want to volunteer with us?


Working parties are held on Wednesday mornings from 10.00 a.m.

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