Lundy notes

Lundy Island is around 5km long, 1km wide, rises to 142 metres above sea level, and is about 30km from the coast of North Devon. It is accessible by ship - the MS Oldenburg makes regular trips from either Bideford or Ilfracombe. The engines on this ship were upgraded a few years ago, so the journey now takes under 2 hours - considerably quicker than it used to be. See www.lundyisland.co.uk for details. Lundy is also accessible by helicopter.
