  1. Hi Alison…..could you please confirm if it’s Friday 24 July that you’d like to book.

    Also, be aware that facemasks will be required on the Cliff Railway for everyone over 11 years of age.

    Best wishes Graham

  2. I have done this walk before on my own but as I have just moved to Babbacombe just before Xmas, I will be very interested in any information about the area you can provide.

Do you have any requests or questions about the walk?
