All of maritime life is here on this 3.75 mile circular walk; Start Bay’s great sweep of sea and land, traditional fishing communities, and the mysterious and tragic lost village of Hallsands. The walk wends it way home again along green lanes and footpaths.
The walk starts at the seafront car park at Beesands. It follows the coastal path, surfaced roads, field footpaths, and green lanes. There are 2 flights of steps and 1 stile.
This is a self-guided, circular, 6 mile walk around Combe Martin.
This walk through the North Devon Coast Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) is a six mile, circular route that takes you on a journey through Combe Martin's industrial heritage.While you walk you will be looking at evidence that can still be found, to this day, of industry in the landscape. Combe Martin's heritage is different to that of its neighbouring towns, in that its remoteness and industry, which left it a 'shammick' of a town, dirty and industrial, meant that it was not visited by tourists until relatively recently. In the landscape today you can see evidence of silver mines, lime burning, maritime industries and market gardening, all the while taking in the beautiful coastal landscape of North Devon. As we walk thorough Combe Martin, names, buildings and fields reveal the industrial past of Combe Martin.
