Our Projects - Ifracombe Torrs toposcope Discovery Point
The base of the old toposcope existed at the view point for the Ilfracombe Torrs just off the route of the South West Coast Path, with the last topscope being vandalised and stolen over 12 years ago. This is a popular resting point for walkers of both the coast path and locals, over 20,000 people came to this point in 2009. The toposcope was renewed by the National Trust in partnership with Ilfracombe Arts College who designed the toposcope from a design brief provided by the Trust. The toposcope provides a range of information for walkers from landscape information to more local information and aims to celebrate the Victorian heritage of Ilfracombe.
