    Classic North Devon. The steep little valley which starts just behind the beach here was the location of one of Britain's most serious flooding disasters in modern times, in the 1950s, following a massive thunderstorm over the Exmoor hills just behind this bit of coast. All but swept the lower parts of the town away. Interesting detail is the long straight gulley on the hillside opposite. This is probably the local funicular railway, unusual in Britain for being water-driven (at least, at the time).
