Walk - Trentishoe Down
2.4 miles (3.9 km)
Elwill Bay, 'Glass box' car park north west of Trentishoe Down - EX34 0PF Elwill Bay, 'Glass box' car park north west of Trentishoe Down
Challenging - Paths and tracks, a quiet country lane, with lots of ascent and descent
A short but challenging walk through moorland, heathland and woodland, with coastal views over dramatically plunging hillsides and out across the Bristol Channel. Trentishoe was remote enough for smugglers to hide their contraband in the church tower and their stables, and in the 1970s it was a popular venue for Glastonbury-style music festivals, where the concept of 'sustainable living' was already being promoted.
