The Coast Path took us up towards the Worthy Toll House, where it costs 2 pounds per car (or horse carriage) to go up the steep hill towards Lynton, avoiding the even steeper Porlock Hill. However, walkers take the path to the right.

Culbone Church, the smallest complete parish church in Britain. The chancel is 13.5 feet (4.1 m) x 10 feet (3.0 m), the nave 21.5 feet (6.6 m) x 12.33 feet (3.8 m) and the building has a total length of 35 feet (10.7 m). It supposedly seats 33 people.... but it would definitely be a bit crowded.

|Parts of the building are Saxon, before 1066AD, the screen is 14th Century.|
After a short stop at the church, on with our walk, We have a long way to go today.
|The Coast path is well signposted, but the mileages never seemed to agree!|
|The gates to Glenthorne House|

We followed the driveway towards Glenthorne, but the Coast Path veered off before we got to the house itself. Too bad, as I'd have loved to see it. There's an old photo of the house here. And the history of the Halliday family who built the house here.
