Jacobs Ladder, Sidmouth by Rod Johnson

Jacobs Ladder, Sidmouth

Jacobs Ladder at Sidmouth in Devon, England. Jacobs Ladder beach is located at the western end of the town's beaches. The south facing beach is pictured here at high water and shows just the upper layer of shingle, but at low water, a large expanse of sand and rock pools is exposed. The pebbles are protected by law. The beach gets its name from the white painted wooden structure, also called Jacobs Ladder. This landmark structure consists of three flights of steps and it provides the quickest access between the beach and Connaught Gardens on the cliff top. The original structure was built in 1853, since then it has been rebuilt and repaired. The present wooden stairway is a Grade II listed. The scene shows people enjoying the autumn sunshine, high above them is the clock tower and to the left is the end of a row of beach huts.
