Constitution Hill

You really can’t fault the weather at the moment here in Wales. It’s been good. Being a clear, warm afternoon yesterday, we took the cliff railway up to the top of Constitution Hill in Aberystwyth. The cliff railway is fairly steep, and I wondered how it compared to the one at Katoomba in the Blue Mountains, near Sydney in Australia. At the top of ‘Consti’, as the locals call it, which affords sweeping views of the town below as well as north to Aberdovey and south to Aberaeron, I had an answer to my question. Information there stated that Katoomba had the steepest cliff railway in the world. On the top of Consti, you can play frizbee golf, have coffee and enjoy the view. Last time Jean and Sophie were here, in 2009, a young boy had fallen off part of the cliff and had to be rescued.
