Devon - Lynton and Lynmouth

Lynton is a small town in Devon, England. It lies on the northern edge of Exmoor and is located at the top of a gorge above Lynmouth, to which it is connected by the Lynton and Lynmouth Cliff Railway. Lynton was once the terminus for the narrow-gauge Lynton & Barnstaple Railway, which served both towns.
The two communities are governed at local level by Lynton and Lynmouth Town Council.
In Lynton is the Parish Church of St Mary, which stands overlooking the sea, surrounded by shops and hotels. The tower is mainly thirteenth century but the church itself has been enlarged and altered ó most notably in 1741, when the nave was rebuilt, and later in Victorian times.
Many of the town buildings were constructed in the latter part of the nineteenth century and the early twentieth century. The Town Hall was given to the town by Sir George Newnes, Bart., a major benefactor of the town; it was opened on 15th August 1900. He also gave the town the Congregational Church on Lee Road.
Evidence of Iron Age activity can be found at the nearby Roborough Castle.
The novel Lorna Doone was set in the Lynton area.
The South West Coast Path passes through the area, and the The Two Moors Way runs from Lynmouth to Ivybridgein South Devon.
