Looking down the cliff railway to Lynmouth. It's long, steep, water powered and I'm going down in a minute!

Ah John, a lovely memory of a couple of years ago. The wife and I plus eldest daughter, who resides at Blue Anchor, walked from Lynmouth to the Valley of the Rocks via the coast cliff path before returning via the road and boarding the cliff railway to go back down to town. Did count the bridges as we walked over and under them on outward climb journey just for the laugh, between gasps for breath, but lost count then! That was in the morning.
Following a bit of lunch we then walked up the valley to the National Trust building Watersmeet where scrumptious cakes and a cuppa were very welcome. Yep, had to walk all the way back down too as car was parked on the quay car park. At our age we should know better, sensible folk would have gone UP on the Cliff Railway and walked down in the morning. Wife and I blamed the daughter for guiding us the wrong way. Grand day though and the Cliff Railway mechanics very interesting.
