Regretfully we are experiencing unforeseen technical issues with the Railway today so will not be running for the remainder of the afternoon.
We aim to reopen in the morning but will update you later.
Apologies for any inconvenience and thank you in advance for your patience.
What a lovely day we had larking about on the beach at this year’s Last Team Standing. Loads of sunshine, hoards of happy faces and just really good fun. The final big event celebrating ten years of community ownership of Babbacombe Cliff Railway and a decade that has seen the railway transport over 1 million people up and down the cliffs from Babbacombe to Oddicombe. And back.
Once again, Oddicombe Beach came alive to the sound of music and laughter – what more could you want on a September Saturday?
Full results are:
1st – Team Happy
2nd – Cray Sea Beaches
3rd – Sinking Feeling
Joint 4th – Both teams from SSG – Mark’s Superheroes and Miles’ Tropical Troupers
6th – Roarfit
7th – Greenbay Desserters
8th – Datel Electrical (winners in 2017)
9th – Docs on the Rocks
10th – Moaty McMoat Face
11th – Superheroes
This was the fourth consecutive year of Last Team Standing. But, with teams asking to sign up for next year and spectators who enjoyed themselves so much that they, too, want to put in a team next time, interest in this event is far from abating…..
2019 Winners – Team Happy
And in 2nd place – Cray Sea Beaches
A most respectable 3rd place for Sinking Feeling
Ready for action…..
Wow – just look at those waves!
The audience take their seats for the matinee performance
To quote Bill Withers – “Lovely Day”
Join us for late summer fun on the beach at this year’s Last Team Standing.
Builds were super impressive last year and team places are already all taken for what promises to be, as always, a great afternoon of larks and laughter.
You’ve got the date in your diary, haven’t you?
1 August is the official date that the community took over the running of Babbacombe Cliff Railway ten years ago. So, it’s a happy anniversary to all of us and thanks to everyone who has travelled with us, supported us or taken part in some of our fun and frolics over that time.
Check out the August edition of Devon Life Magazine for a great double-page spread all about the tenth anniversary of community ownership of Babbacombe Cliff Railway.
