Walk - Bull Point & Lee Bay
4.5 miles (7.2 km)
Lee Bay seafront - EX34 8LR Lee Bay seafront
Moderate - This walk travels on paths, tracks and lanes that may be muddy or marshy, with many stretches of steep ascent and descent, including steps.
A rollercoaster walk, inland at first through ancient woodland and coastal farmland to a medieval barton. Passing prehistoric standing stones in the windswept fields high above the coast, the path drops to another small wooded valley and then emerges on a large exposed heath with tremendous views across the Bristol Channel, where Bull Point lighthouse was built to warn ships of the lethal reefs below. Lee Bay is renowned for the fuchsia hedges around its cottage gardens, and its secluded beach was the perfect place for smugglers to land their contraband.
