Rock Walk Torquay.

Rock walk is a system of paths and steps that run along and up and down the cliff face. Back in 1954 when I first went on the Walk there were views to be had of the Bay and Paignton and Brixham. Now it is overgrown after years of neglect and the tree roots are digging down into the cliff face, forcing it apart. It was recently declared unsafe and the trees would have to come down. This work is expected to take 6 weeks and the main road at the foot of the cliff will be closed during the work.

Work will begin to remove up to 35 trees on 28 Jan 2008.

Wow I like your blog, well done.

Notes about the blog. Updated 08 March 2008

Not much is happening at Rock Work now. All the work clearing the trees has been done. A barrier has been erected to prevent rock falls from reaching the road. Now we wait for the geological survey in May to see what can be done to fix the rocks in place.
After that when work starts again later in the year I will post more photos.
Any news items I come across I will post as they appear in the local paper.

Or you can work through the whole blog to find more detail.
