Sad news

We are extremely sad to announce the passing away of John Ayres, Chairman of Babbacombe Cliff Railway Community Interest Company.
John was passionate about the Cliff Railway and his mission was to ensure that it would always be a part of the community of Babbacombe, available for local people to use as much as possible, as well as holidaymakers. He was the custodian of this unique piece of history and was committed to keeping the railway in excellent condition and securing its future for generations to come.
His passion, enthusiasm and energy ensured that Babbacombe Cliff Railway became the thriving enterprise that it is today.
John was so much more than our Chairman. He was a wonderful man who was our inspiration and our friend.
His passing is a devastating loss and all of the team at Babbacombe Cliff Railway will miss him enormously.
