Rural roundabout-Lynton, North Devon
Rural roundabout-Lynton, North Devon
One of the more isolated roundabouts on our road network - this is at the foot of Castle Rock and ahead stands Rugged Jack, to the west of Lynton..The Valley of Rocks is the former route of the East Lyn River until coastal erosion diverted the flow to its present position. This coastal dry valley has rock formations from the Ice Age - the oldest Devonian rocks in North Devon. The area is managed by the Exmoor National Park Authority and is part of the West Exmoor Coast and Woods Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). It is noted for its herd of wild goats and previous visitors have included poets Samuel Taylor Coleridge and William Wordsworth in 1797 and Robert Southey in 1799. Time taken 4.13 pm BST (British Summer Time).
