London Bridge

One of the first things that anybody coming into Torquay will see as they walk the short distance from the station to the sea-front is the great limestone sea arch on the horizon called London Bridge just beyond the Marina. The coastal path runs along above and in fact you can walk right out onto it. However most people don't and so will never see that the entire seaward face is one single, huge, piece of fossilized coral from when the seas around here where warmer and that section of stone formed what was the sea bed rather than the cliffs that skirt the sea.
