Did you catch the start of the series Coastal Path on BBC1 this week? It was so lovely to see our beautiful coastline. They have very kindly sent me the schedule seeing as it goes practically over our doorstep.
24th August: Episode 1 – Minehead – Hartland Point (Somerset and North Devon)
31st August: Episode 2 – Marsland – Sennen Cove (North Cornwall)
7th Sept: Episode 3 – Porthcurno – Kingsand/Cawsand (South Cornwall)
14th Sept: Episode 4 – Plymouth – Orcombe Point (South Devon)
21st Sept: Episode 5 – Ladram Bay to South Haven Point (Jurassic Coast)
So the 7th of Septemeber is ‘our’ section. The SWCP brings many folks our way because we are so close by – only 2mins from the path (as well as the beach!) – and also we’re a good place to stop and start for people who are walking in sections because of work/family restrictions. Only 5mins walk to the train station and 20 mins to Bus terminus……..
An economic alternative to camping for a treat or if the weather is misbehaving…..I could go on!!
Also, there is a challenge too. Anyone up for a challenge? Details below.
