Walk - Wembury & Heybrook Bay
4.0 miles (6.4 km)
Wembury Beach Car Park - PL9 0HP Wembury Beach Car Park
Moderate - Mostly level and easy underfoot, with one fairly steep but steady climb and a long flight of steps downhill.
A walk following some of the ancient green lanes or 'holloways' linking the fields and villages behind Wembury to the shoreline below. Travelling high on the hillside, the lanes give great views of Plymouth Sound and the English Channel, and the various structures built in the water to defend Plymouth from enemy ships as well as from the weather. This is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) for its rocks and marine life, and it is an important place for wintering and nesting birds. Listen out for cirl buntings in the hedges, and watch out for the swift and deadly dive of a peregrine falcon as it hunts its prey.
