  • South West Coast Path Association, 50th Anniversary.

    Last Friday 6 of us attended the South West Coast Path Association 50th anniversary forum in The Royal William Yard in Plymouth. The speakers covered a range of key issues affecting the coast path, including equity of access, climate change, nature recovery, regenerative tourism, community engagement and the coastal wildbelt. All subjects close to our hearts. They also looked forward to the next 50 years, and how the coast path and those of us that operate on and support it, will have to change. Gave us a chance to check out one or two of the local cafe bars and restaurants too...which is never a bad thing!

This iconic Bronze Age Clapper bridge is required for crossing the river on the Two Moors Way route. Since it washed away in the winter an alternative crossing has had to be used further upstream which meant walkers could not enjoy the bridge crossing OR the Tarr Steps Farm Inn which lies on the other side of the river. All back in place now and ready for a summer of Two Moors Way Ramblers The Two Moors Way is part of the Devon Coast to Coast Route crossing both Dartmoor and Exmoor National Park from Ivybridge to Lynmouth,
