After the railway was initially opened Barnstaple Quay station was moved 250 meters west to a broader piece of land for two platforms allowing for the new Barnstaple Lynton Narrow Gauge Railway to have a connecting terminous.


The building later became the cafe within the Bus station that took over the site. Eventually even that closed when the Bus station was moved more central to the town.
