Rock Walk By Night

From the top at night the best view is towards the Grand Hotel and Tor Abbey Gardens. Even at 9pm there were people wandering about looking at the Bay by night. But His Holiness the Deputy Mayor, Councillor Chris Lewis's claim that Rock walk would be visable at night from Brixham seems to me a little farfetched (see second photo).
A few coloured floodlights are needed to bring the cliff face back to it's former glory and to interest the droves of tourists Chris is expecting to travel miles to see Torquay's latest attraction.
The photos of the Harbour Bridge and the pub I threw in just to make up for the disappointment of Rock Walk at street level.

Had my first first walk up there the other day looks good and the views are great.
At night it looks nothing. Even if they had say 10 bright coloured flood lights lighting up the cliff area around the steps it would look so much better.
Regarding those pole lights what were they thinking a total waste.
Very interesting blog btw well done :)

That's a very nice view of the city. I would love to go there.


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.

If you left click on a photo you get a larger image.

Each day has the label "Day", click on it and you will miss out the other posts.
