The Needles: spectacular bus ride
The Needles: spectacular bus ride
This has to be one of the most magnificent bus routes in Britain. On the steep climb up to the Needles Old Battery, the road hugs the clifftop and, from the northward top deck, you can just see a steep grassy bank and the sea some 100m below. The bus in this picture is approaching a hairpin left turn on its way to the summit.
