Oh its nice to know the 'flower pots' are theatres. My first visit to Ilfracombe was by train all the way from Brum, I've probably mentioned it before. Have to confess with all my visits there, I looked at the tunnels but never went through to the beach, but I did go on a paddle steamer trip to Lundy.
Quote-- I wonder how many people go to Ilfarcombe and don't visit the Tunnels Beach?.
If i remember right the tunnel was cut into the rock to allow Victorian swimming, protocol at that time demanded that bathers swam in different parts of the beach (no mixed bathing)
i,m trying to find a photo of myself standing on top of a dead " Portuguese Man a War jelly fish on Woolacomb beach when i was about 8-9 1951ish no luck so far it must have been 2ft high. Dek
Woolacombe Had its own ASTON VILLA SUPPORTERS CLUB of NORTH DEVON. They used to travel up to the games, I do not know if they still do?
I think but for the look of the "flower pots" the rest of Ilfracombe is like most North Devon resorts Fantastic ,each one has its own charm.
The Tunnel Beach "TUNNELS " were bored out of the cliff rock by Welsh Miners, Only ever visited once back in the late 1950s found them rather dull, just rock pools no beach as such?
I think the family will go on & on visiting Woolacombe ,as it is now part of our year, as it was for my Mom & Dad.
LOVE THE PLACE FOREVER, WILL BE PUT TO REST IN MOTEHOE ONE DAY.(Not soon I hope LOL)

Join utube. Register with user name and password. When registered you'll see a tab "Upload a video" On your own computer bring your video onto your desktop - I find this easiest and easily locatable.
Back on utube once you have click upload a video then it will present you with a browse button. Click this and you'll see all your documents on your pc. Find desktop and look for your video. Click onto this and magically this will appear in the utube bar. At the side of this there will be an upload button. Click and then you'll get the message that your video is uploading. You'll see progress from a bar as it it runs along. After about 5-10 imutes or so you'll get a message that your video has successfully uploaded. It will take a few minutes to process and then hey presto your video is up on utube. Click on it and you'll note the url in the top browser bar. Copy this and paste it into a message on this page. You'll see it's a blue coloured live link. When peple read your message "Hey look at this video!" (example!!) then they will be directed to utube and straight to your video. Anne
I like Ilfra but last time I was there it looked slightly run down - probably because I had not got my rose tinted specs on.
You've probably visited the place near Woolacombe in the 2003 pic below - had my first teenage 'no parent' hol there, such a very long time ago. I've posted pics of that old hol in this thread.
