SX6345 : Westcombe

taken 8 years ago, near to Ringmore, Devon, Great Britain

Or Wiscombe. The coast path runs behind the beach. From the waymark on the right, a permissive path runs up the valley floor to join Kingston Bridleway 2. "At Westcombe Beach stand the ruins of a stable that once housed the horses which drew carriages full of the well-to-do down to the beach. There was a private tea house here, owned by the Flete Estate, and guests entertained here at beach parties included members of the royal family." LinkExternal link As there is little evidence of any other building here, I assume that this is the rebuilt stable referred to.
