The West of England Main line, west of Exeter, had several branches leading from it. These, on a map, looked like gnarled fingers and the LSWR network west of Exeter became known as the Withered Arm. The branches served the following places: The Tarka Line to Barnstaple. From Barnstaple Junction station were the now closed branches to Torrington via Bideford, Ilfracombe and, from the first station on the Ilfracombe Branch, Barnstaple Town, the famous narrow gauge Lynton and Barnstaple Railway, long closed but now being partially restored. The closed branch to Halwill Junction Station, where three branches radiated to Bude, Padstow via Launceston and Torrington. The Tamar Valley Line to Callington, now closed beyond Gunnislake. The, now closed, short suburban branch from Plymouth Friary to Turnchapel.
