Coastwalk , South West Coast Path

Sidmouth → Seaton


Distance: 10.3 miles
Ascent: 676 metres
Duration: 4 hours 20 minutes

« Budleigh Salterton | Lyme Regis »

The view from High Peak yesterday revealed how today's walk would begin so I was prepared for the steep climb up Salcombe Hill. The yo-yoing from clifftop to valley floor continued for the first half of the walk, before a fantastic slow descent to Branscombe Mouth. Here a valley runs parallel to the coast, affording wonderful views through the trees to the village of Branscombe below.


Once round Beer Head, Seaton swings into view. I dropped down to the beach at Beer and walked along the rock-strewn foreshore to Seaton, amused by felled signs warning of falling rocks.

After getting back to the flat, I followed the pattern laid down yesterday: a shower and a video mid-afternoon, followed by dinner, a trip to the cinema and one final video before bed. I can see this pattern continuing.

Rewalked on 26 September 2011.
