Portledge Coast Path gets a facelift


As nature takes its course land is eroded and deposited all along our coast.  This is as true on the Rugged and beautiful North Devon Coast as anywhere, which poses a number of issues in managing our vital, much loved and well used coastal paths. Between tranquil, sleepy Peppercombe and Babbacombe is a rather wet but awe inspiring stretch of coast with an amazing view of this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, stretching from Hartland Point to Baggy and Morte Point. Along this stretch the National Trust have long been guardians of the South West Coast Path (SWCP), but more recently undertook a rather more large scale project to convert a once wet and unpredictable 100m slope to a meandering boardwalk with views of LundyIsland.

The National Trust owns over 420 miles of the SWCP, so I would like to take this opportunity to say a big THANK YOU!! to all the volunteers who have helped, rain or shine, in this project and others in the west country and we hope this improves many peoples enjoyment of this beautiful coastline.
