Devon

40 Coast and Country Walks

Patrick Kinsella

GBP 6.99

From the crumbly rhubarb-and-cream-coloured cliffs of the Jurassic Coast in the southeast to the surf-stroked craggy coves in the north, across the wilderness and woodland of Dartmoor and Exmoor, and through the verdant valleys and great green grazing lands of the dairy belt – Devon is a country of exquisite contrasts and natural wonder.

Whether you’re looking for an easy afternoon stroll along the shore, a riverside ramble to an atmospheric country pub or a tor-topping trek on the moors, there’s something to suit every boot in Patrick Kinsella’s inspiring collection of 40 Devon walks.

Description

Devon

Devon is a country of exquisite contrasts and natural wonder. Whether you’re looking for an easy afternoon stroll along the shore, a riverside ramble to an atmospheric country pub or a tor-topping trek on the moors, there’s something to suit every boot in Patrick Kinsella’s inspiring collection of 40 Devon walks.

History

Those who like their hikes to have a historical backdrop are particularly well served here, with headlands and hilltops offering a series of forts, castles and defensive structures, some dating from prehistoric tribal times, others a remnant of more modern scuffles with our near neighbours. The Spanish Armada cruised right along this coast, with Sir Francis Drake and co in hot pursuit, and the cliffs are fringed with forts, gun batteries and lookouts from the Napoleonic Wars and the Second World War.
