Okehampton is a town in Devon, England.


Get in[edit]

The Dartmoor Railway is a branch line to Okehampton which closed to passenger services in 1972, though it remained in use for freight and as a summer heritage railway. In 2021 the track is being renewed and regular trains from Exeter are expected to commence towards the end of the year.
