Lynton 2006

Lynton perched on a cliff-top about 450 feet above the sea. It is about 300 yards west of Lynmouth by the water-powered funicular railway and a little more by the steep footpath with many hairpin bends, but about 2 miles by the steeply winding shortest road and over 5 miles on the main road (just about) fit for coaches, caravans and other large vehicles.
