The bottom of Furber Steps

Furber Steps descends 400 metres by lots and lots and lots of steps – many of these were hewn from the cliff in the early 1900s. See the interesting historic photo at

You may be wondering why I have been so cheery about all these stairs. The answer is because this is a rare case where there is a lift back to the top via the Scenic Railway.

but the LORD determines his steps.”
