The Cliff Railway.

Lynton and Lynmouth Cliff Railway

In continuous use since opening in 1890, this water-powered railway joins the two towns of Lynton (at the top) and Lynmouth (at the bottom). The 862 foot track covers an elevation of 500 feet making it highest and steepest of the three remaining water railways in the world - and the only one in the UK.

The two carriages are joined by a cable and act as counter-weights to each other, with the carriage at the top of the line filling up with water sourced from the nearby Lyn Valley to power the railway. The railway won the bronze award in Devon's Large Attraction of the Year 2018.
