Blackmoor Gate village, Devon

Blackmoor Gate is a small village roughly halfway between Barnstaple and Lynmouth in North Devon.

Effectively the western gateway to Exmoor, Blackmoor Gate has been a meeting point for old tracks, or ridgeways, dropping down from the moor to the coast at Mortehoe.

The name is thought to derive from local landowners, the Blackmore family, who owned large areas of land around here and Parracombe.

There is a fine inn and licenced restaurant here called 'The Old Station House Inn'. It was originally one of the main stations on the Lynton-Barnstaple Narrow Gauge Railway, that operated from 1898 until its closure in 1935.
