The Bideford and Okehampton railway of 1831

Trans. Devon Assoc. vol. 34 (1902), pp. 168-200.

by

Sir R. Lethbridge

Prepared by Michael Steer

The paper chronicles a project proposed in 1831 by a number of energetic community leaders and speculators to link the seaport of Bideford, the Bristol Channel and the Welsh coalfields with the north Dartmoor town of Okehampton and from there eventually to Exeter and Plymouth. The project proposal provides an interesting example of an early form of cost-benefit analysis designed to attract subscribers. The project after a lengthy battle, was not approved and rail travel did not arrive in Okehampton until 1874, another 34 years after this very early attempt at developing Devon's transportation infrastructure.
