An excellent local company that provide many outdoor experiences and activities…take a look at their website www.exmooradventures.co.uk

West Somerset Railway

A hugely popular attraction is the steam railway at Minehead. West Somerset Railway is the longest preservation line in England. Steams do not run everyday so best to check if only steam will do. Diesel traction engines also take passengers to and from Minehead to Bishps Lydeard which is approx 6 miles north west of Taunton. (The line used to connect direct with Taunton but Mr Beeching had other ideas and the branch was axed in the 1960s.) Get the full story and timetable from www.west-somerset-railway.co.uk/timetables
