Sea Defences at Parson Tunnel
Sea Defences at Parson Tunnel
Class 45, 45017, bursts out of Parson Tunnel to run along the seawall towards Teignmouth. The scale of the sea defences make the locomotive seem toy-like. The two pillars in the centre support a bridge over an access point to the beach from the village of Holcombe.
