Dartmouth to Brixham (13th Oct)

I've just spent an hour and a half going through the pics of the next stage of the walk - that's the price of not writing it up straight away!!!!!

Anyway, I will include lots of pics and little writing so that you can whizz through them. I love these serviette holders...

We had been told, by several different people that we had met, that this section was absolutely stunning so our expectations were very high. We crossed the River Dart on that amazing ferry,

with the tugboat doing its dance!

Across to the colourful houses of Kinswear...


From here we walked out on to the cliff, which was good, but not quite the stunning scenery we were expecting.

The walking was quite strenuous with several deep valleys to cross...

Looking back at Scabbacombe - you can just see Tim!

Some trees ... :-)

... black sheep ...

Man Sands had a group of schoolchildren exploring the beach...

..we enjoyed this view back to Sharkham Point.
We had to include Trinity House's shortest lighthouse -
out on Berry Head, but still 190' above sea level!
There there was also this useful display explaining the landforms you can see across the bay to Torquay.
From here we headed down into Brixham.


  1. You read mine, I'll read yours!

    At least someone is out there.

    Thanks for the next instalment. We've been reviewing your posts to see which sections we might attempt.

  2. What are the landforms across the bay to Torquay?
