Walk - Babbacombe & Oddicombe
2.2 miles (3.5 km)
Walls Hill Road carpark, Babbacombe -TQ1 3LZ Walls Hill Road carpark, Babbacombe
A short but fairly strenuous walk on one of Britain's highest cliff-top promenades, but you can avoid the long and steep downhill section by riding down on the famous funicular railway, built in 1926 and still carrying a quarter of a million passengers a year! This is a very important area geologically and it is rich in wildlife, with 35 nationally scarce species to be found in a grassland habitat found nowhere else in the world. Children will be fascinated by the cliff railway, and by the different kinds of rock and the way they have been overturned.
