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.

On this walk you can either choose to go the short route which is 2.5 miles or the longer route which is 6 miles.

The walk starts at the WWT Car Park on Stert Drove. From here you follow the path towards Otterhampton Marsh. You will come to a viewing platform from where you can see right out across the Marsh.

Once you have taken in this fascinating view you can carry on to the Mendip Bird Hide which looks out over the main saltmarsh and Quantock Hide. From here if you opt for the shorter walk you can head back to the car park. If you choose to stay on the longer walk, you then have to follow either the Summer or the Winter walk because diversions are in place from September to April to protect over-wintering birds.

You then retrace your steps back to the car park taking in the last of the beautful views.
