Explore South Devon Project

19 new circular walks have been created for people to enjoy the coast around South Devon between Heybrook Bay and Berry Head.  These walks take in the stunning and diverse landscape of the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, providing access to a coastline rich in maritime history.  The routes explore busy fishing ports and picturesque villages, offering glimpses of an array of wildlife such as seals and Cirl Buntings.  

These new walking routes have been set up in partnership with the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty Unit.  This was made possible thanks to support from the South Devon Coastal Local Action Group and funding from the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development: Europe investing in rural areas LEADER programme.
