More CCTV at Barnstaple station

Stationmasters cafe 2

Additional CCTV cameras have been installed at Barnstaple station in a joint project with the Stationmaster’s Cafe there.

12 new high quality CCTV cameras and a recording system have been installed, improving coverage of the perimeter of the cafe and station.

Where cameras have been replaced, the new equipment will provide better quality recorded images than before.

Funding for the project has come from the Devon & Cornwall Rail Partnership thanks to a grant from the Community Rail Development Fund, a joint initiative of the Department for Transport and the Community Rail Network.

The Stationmasters’ Cafe is in the old Station Master’s house which had been derelict for more than twenty-five years when it was beautifully restored by cafe owner Mike Day.

More information about the cafe can be found here and here.
