SX9472 : The Den and the Ness

taken 7 years ago, near to Teignmouth, Devon, Great Britain

The Den and the Ness
The Den and the Ness
This is approximately the 2011 equivalent of the 1986 Domesday view at LinkExternal link seen from adult eye-level.
The obvious change is that the raised flowerbed in the foreground has been rebuilt, taking up less space, and the Cabbage Palms (Cordyline australis) have been replaced (the tree on the right in 2011 is flowering). No illuminations. Traffic sign poles have appeared. There are not many people, but it was 08:22 in the morning. A more subtle difference is a change of level. On the right in 1986 low walls can be made out; old maps show a benchmark on the further wall. They flanked short flights of steps from the footway up to the grass of the Den. At some point they have been done away with and the ground regraded. The 'Beachcomber' café on the left, and the small lighthouse, right, SX9472 : Teignmouth lighthouse are little changed. New on the right is a kiosk for ice cream and the crazy golf attendant amid other recent provision.
