Fifty people turned up on the downs today to show their support to the Facebook group Keep your fishy fingers off Babbacombe Downs even though the event was only mentioned on the Facebook site on Thursday evening. The event went quietly with no sign of Nick Bye, but I expect he has better things to do on a Saturday afternoon.
The site compared to the whole of the Downs is small but will intrude and there are plenty of places in and a round Torquay that are standing empty and could be made into a posh fish restaurant. I leave you with a picture of 3 blocks of flats that were built in the wrong place and are still here, immovable 45 years later. a little warning from history
