This extremely active Friends group was established in early 2005 in response to a threat to the future of the Babbacombe Cliff Railway.
Our aim –
‘To Preserve, Protect and Promote the Babbacombe Cliff Railway’
Torbay Council has owned and operated The Cliff Railway since it was built in 1926. But it was in decline and it’s future threatened. Lobbying from the Friends convinced them to re-invest over £570,000 in a complete renovation which was completed by late 2006.
We have established a Community Interest Company that will take over the operation of the Cliff Railway and run it as a competitive and forward thinking business soon.
We maintain a full programme of activities and events including meetings with presentations and lectures, visits and activities at the Cliff Railway. Members regularly meet on site to weed and litter pick. Ask for a leaflet.
