The Lynton & Lynmouth Cliff Railway

Lee House

The Lynton & Lynmouth Cliff Railway,  just a short walk from Lee House is a clever piece of Victorian engineering that's been running for more than a century. The way it works; the ideas behind it and the machinery that makes it run are fascinating. 

Find out why it was built, who was involved in creating it and how it works using nothing more than water drawn from the nearby West Lyn river.
