Goodrington sea wall

6th July 2021

This is the sea wall at Goodrington. It was built in the 1860's to carry the railway up to Churston. The sea wall is over 150 years old and still going strong. This photo was taken whilst undertaking our regular coastal inspections to ensure that all of our protection and earthwork assets are secure to enable us to operate our steam trains safely.

  • Harry Potteresque - Once on the platform we boarded the train (covid restrictions applied) and stepped back in time and themes of Harry Potters Hogwarts express sprang to mind! Brilliant!
  • Lovely trip - The steam railway train is brilliant, the iconic click-clacking of the train was enjoyable to listen to and and the train ride had stunning views. The short ferry was also lovely (only about a minute or two).
  • Agatha Christie country - The ride on the train is beautiful right along the coast & Dart valley. You can also take your well behaved dog. I would highly recommend this excursion, we go every time that we are in Devon, it is not to be missed.
