      The Autocar's caption: "Waiting Their Turn. Competitors lining up near Barbrook Mill to await their turn up Beggar's Roost".

      This photo confused me at first, but the title is correct. These vehicles are approaching Barbrook from Lynmouth/Lynton. The photographer is standing just opposite the branching of Riddaway Hill from the current main road. A row of houses now stands on the flattish area between the road and W Lyn river. The permanent way of the L&B railway is evident towards the top of the picture - the line closed in 1935. Many, many more trees in evidence nowadays!
