SX7439 : Salcombe Estuary and town from Snape Point

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

Salcombe Estuary and town from Snape Point
Salcombe Estuary and town from Snape Point
From near the photographer's position a railway line base was dug and laid to bring a train service close to Salcombe. If it had been completed it would have been a similar situation as that developed in Dartmouth and Kingswear. The train line would have been provided to serve town and help it to develop but the railway line would have ended across the water from the town it was serving. The trainline project was abandoned and Snape Point today remains a haven of peace with no development only superb views of this flooded river valley seen here on a fine spring, April morning.
