This is what was and still is called London bridge but about four years ago now, the bit that attached this island in the ocean to the main land made another huge strong looking arch and forty years ago I am guessing it did look like London bridge.
Why my husband and I used to drive out there (everyone did) park the car right on top up there and look around have a picnic and enjoy the view.
:o) We even took our dear American friends on a trip along this very coast they too have stood way out there.....................or did they I know one was not happy to venture too close to the cliff edge that was for sure :o)....................
Anyway about 20 years back they stopped cars from parking out there then you just had to walk out to get the best view on the coast. hundreds of visitors did it every day.
THEN..........about four years ago (I think) on a quiet tourists visiting day a family of several walked out there to take in the view and when they got to the spot way out were we have all stood before the arch between the main land and the piece they were on FELL!! YES FELL!! to the ocean and they had to be rescued by helicopter what a venture they would remember forever I am sure and their guardian angels must have watched over them that day for sure.
I just had to take several photos to show you all the way they did them here and they are all now part of a lovely Dry stone wall Heritage trail. many of our rail lines have gone and down in this area they have made them bike trails this is what you can see on the way.
The trail goes for a long way and when we are fit enough to ride our bikes from one town to the next we have promised ourselves to go back to the bike trail and do the trip But I know we will be stopping all the time to take in the views and read all the trail signs along its track.
