Lynton and Lynmouth cliff railway in Devon Great Britain

If you ever visit Devon in the South of England then do visit the two villages of Lynton and Lynmouth situated on the North of Exmoor National Park. I was there recently and really enjoyed myself. What I found most interesting was the Lynton and Lynmouth cliff railway purely powered by water from the West Lyn River situated about a mile away. The Lynton and Lynmouth cliff railway actually joins the two twin villages (some say they are towns). Once you are on the top of the cliff there’s a coffee shop and had one of the best cafe lattes I had for a long time. The views from there were spectacular. We then walked about a mile to the Valley of the Rocks. It was slightly scary walking the narrow lane as one side there was mountains and the other side a cliff and one slip and you would end up in the sea.

  1. This is not such a great cliff, in India we have good cliffs than this. It is near to Chandigarh, India. it comes down with a speed and is a nice one to sit in.
