GET THE FREE HERITAGE APP
As you travel beneath the towering viaduct, call at picturesque stations and meander alongside the estuary, the app uses GPS to tell you about what you’re seeing.
You’ll learn how in the early days the only way for the public to use the line was to pay for their hat to be transported and then hop on too. And how the arrival of the railway at Liskeard meant that every clock in town had to be wound on by 16 minutes.
You can even use the app to bring to life a talking portrait of Horace Holbrook, Superintendent of the Line (1908). Search it out at Liskeard and Looe stations.

ABOUT THE HERITAGE PROJECT
The Looe Valley Line heritage project is brought to you by the Devon & Cornwall Rail Partnership.
It was funded by the GWR Customer and Communities Improvement Fund and the Designated Community Rail Development Fund, a joint initiative of the Department for Transport and the Association of Community Rail Partnerships (now Community Rail Network).
