I lived in Parracombe for forty years, have known it for even longer, and saw it change gradually over that time. Strangely, this view of village is how it was almost 120 years ago, but still familiar. In the age of steam a narrow gauge railway was built from Barnstaple to Lynton. During the planning process the community in Parracombe was less than enthusiastic about the proposition. Parracombe ended up with a ‘halt’ rather than a full station. The age of steam almost bypassed Parracombe completely.
