where the hell is that if is Poole is 168miles and Minehead 462?????
South Devon, to get to Minehead you'd need to walk around Cornwall, through North Devon and on to Somerset...
I was at that sign post a few weeks ago
''Tis a damn fine signpost
The other night round are way
It says 'Start Point' on the post, so I'm gonna take a shot in the dark and say it's at Start Point.
The South West coast path is very long. Penzance to St Ives is about ten miles across country, or something daft like 40 miles round the coast path. There are also lots of estuaries without bridges so if you wanted to walk round the coast without recourse to ferries you're looking at huge detours round the Dart, Camel, Exe and Fal estuaries.
Intersting fact: it was the bewildering nature of Britain's coastline and the impossibility of accurately measuring it which first inspired the field of fractal geometry. The UK has more coastline than Mexico, despite Mexico having about eight times as much land as well as extensive peninsulas and numerous islands.
Doh! Of course. I feel a fool now!
Walking the country at night.
I did a photo essay on Mawgan Porth out of Season.
Porthcothan, not far up the coast from here, has some wonderful rock formations including a huge collapsed cave system.
Indeed it does.
From there up to Tintagel is pretty much the best bit of coast in the country.
I'd throw in Boscastle and Crackington as well but yeah.
I wouldn't disagree.
Around from Ilfercombe to Combe Martin is in with a shout I reckon.
I've got one parent in Ilfracombe and one in Boscastle so I'm never short of pretty places to visit
