Over 125 years of rail travel

The historic Tamar Valley Line opened to passengers in 1890. It was originally part of the main line from Plymouth to London that was vital in developing the fruit and vegetable industry of the Tamar Valley. Although many branches of the original line were closed in the 1960s, this section survived as it is the fastest route from the Bere Peninsula to Plymouth. The peninsula is almost entirely surrounded by the Rivers Tamar and Tavy, so road connections are limited.
