Stone handaxe
THIS small handaxe is one of the most beautiful in the British Museum. It is made from quartz with attractive amethyst banding, a difficult material from which to make tools because it is extremely hard. The toolmaker would have had to hit with considerable force and accuracy to remove flakes. Such a high degree of difficulty makes the thin, symmetrical shape of this piece a masterpiece of the toolmakers’ art.

Sunny Lyn Holiday Park, Lynbridge, Lynton, Devon
 (голосов: 0)
Sunny Lyn Holiday Park, Lynbridge, Lynton, DevonThere's something slightly 1960s or 1970s about Sunny Lyn... something reminiscent ot simpler times. But there's also something mildly exotic about the place too, as though it's not in Britain at all... a hint of France peui-ftre?This heady mix of atmosphere might be a reflection of the pace of life within this deep cleft of North Devon countryside. The loudest sounds in these parts emanate from the West Lyn river, tumbling joyfully through the site, and the hills, shooting skywards on either side, whispering loudly for your attention.The campsite occupies the only patch of level ground in this steep and scenic valley, along with a small clutch of ageing statics and a few houses perched on the precipice on one side of the valley. Nothing else intrudes into this exclusive scene, but the elegant little town of Lynton is only a (stunning) 10-minute stroll away, and the mini holiday resort of Lynmoutb is further down the valley's steep hill. Like Sunny Lyn, Lynton and Lynmouth have a slightly exotic appeal and old-fashioned charm. The whole area has a magnetism all its own that doesn't seem to lessen, no matter how often you visit.

COOL FACTOR That lost-world feeling.

WHO'S IN? Tents, vanners, dogs - yes. Croups - no.

ON SITE Thirty pitches on small, level, riverside ground; a section with 8 hook-ups. Decent facilities: toilets, showers (2W, 2M), washing-up sinks, laundry, shop for food, alcohol, and beach combustibles. The small cafe does traditional breakfasts. No campfires, but BBQs off the ground okay.

OFF SITE Visit the Valley of the Rocks, a 30-minute, almost level, walk from the site.
