Hiking in East Devon

Another travelogue has been uploaded, this time a composite of many hikes along the East Devon coast between Sidmouth and Branscombe. This coastline is part of the Jurassic Coast (I would prefer it be more accurately named the Mesozoic Coast but there you are!) and is a world heritage site.

The joy of this 12 kilometer hike (which has several steep inclines along the way) is that it rarely comes near to a road with traffic, has good hiking on cliff tops and pebble beaches, and affords the opportunity to swim along the way in summer. The beaches and water are clean and in August and September the sea is warm enough to relax in!
