  • Walking in Devon

    Posted by Daryl
    We're back walking in Devon again, it's been too long away from the coast path!
    We walked from Torcross to East Prawle, which is an amazing stretch of coastline around Start Point, in the South Hams district of Devon. The walk is quite gentle, mostly flat and is about 8.5 miles long.
    East Prawle was our destination along with the infamous Pigs Nose pub, which is always an event not to be missed. We camped over and walked back to the car the next day.
