Opening the South West Coastal Footpath - Cornborough  1978
Opening the South West Coastal Footpath - Cornborough 1978
This view looking south towards Cornborough Cliff was taken on the occasion of the formal opening of this N Devon section of the SW coastal footpath, by the first Government Minister for Sport (Denis Howell, previously Minister for Drought!)hence the "mass ramble" on an otherwise normally quiet Sunday. The path follows the line of a dismantled railway trackbed that ran from Westward Ho! along the coast round the cliff then inland to Bideford. It's clearly marked on the current OS Explorer map
