Aside from being the site of Napoleon’s death, Ste Helena island is the site of this very impressive stairway.

I haven’t been been there but this is one of those unusual events that occurred during the New Zealand lockdown in March 2020 and that has made us safe here. I was alerted to this by a kind person on Twitter, and many thanks.

Opened in 1829 it is owned by the Saint Helena Railway Company, and it is the remains of a cable railway that was removed due to termite damage in 1871.

There are 699 steps and it is lit at night.

I have plans – when the world returns to ‘normal.’
