Step out in North Devon
Join National Trust head rangers for some of the area’s best walks.
A series of walks and trails led by National Trust head rangers will reveal the beauty, history, geology and wildlife of North Devon this October.
The events are part of the trust’s nationwide celebration of ‘The Great British Walk’ and will take in some of the region’s stunning seascapes and views.
Jonathan Fairhurst kicks off the walks with a six mile ramble around Baggy Point to Woolacombe on Monday (October 1) at 10am.
“I love this challenging walk with its stunning seascapes over to Hartland, Lundy Island and across towards Woolacombe Bay,” he said.

“As the coast path gradually rises towards the tip of Baggy Point it ends with towering sea cliffs. The area is full of dummy pillboxes used by the Americans as training for D-Day and one can often see kestrels too. At the end there is the lovely caf� at Sandleigh for a well earned cup of tea.”
On Wednesday (October 3) join Justin Seedhouse for a 5.5 mile Bucks Mill walk around Bideford Bay, starting Bucks Mills 10am.
