How it Began

“In the 19th century, the high cliffs separating Lynton from Lynmouth were a major obstacle to economic development. The twin villages mainly relied on sea transport as land travel was extremely difficult through Exmoor. Coal, lime, foodstuffs and other essentials arrived at Lynmouth in sailing vessels. Freight was carried by packhorses or in horse drawn carts up the steep hill to Lynton.”
