near to Goodrington, Torbay, Great Britain

Broadsands - cliffs to the north of the bay
Broadsands - cliffs to the north of the bay
The view shows the houses with fine sea views set high on the hillside and above the Torquay to Kingswear railway line.

Below the highest house can be seen a small section of the railway line can be seen running very close to the edge of the cliff. Below it can be seen the massive granite bolders, apparently tumbling down the cliffs to the beach, placed there in an attempt to minimise coastal cliff erosion.
