The National Railway Museum in York and Shildon is home to the UK’s national rail collection.

The Newton Abbot Town and GWR Museum concentrates on the town’s varied history while The Great Western Railway Room explores the town’s links with the railways.

The South Devon Railway is our local preserved railway.  Many of our volunteers also volunteer on the railway. It is the longest established steam railway in the south west and a great tourist attraction running over a seven mile former Great Western Railway branch line

The Stover Canal Society was formed in 1999 and is dedicated to the preservation and restoration of the Stover Canal, Newton Abbot. Built in the 18th Century, the canal was used for nearly 150 years to transport materials from the Bovey Basin, and granite from quarries on Dartmoor, via the Haytor Granite Tramway.
