North Devon Coast from the Air
North Devon Coast from the Air
  • Description

Devon is unique among English counties in having two separated coastlines. That each coastline is as different as chalk from cheese is amply revealed through the photographs in this book and its sister publication South Devon Coast from the Air.

Devonís north coast is less frequented, due in part to that region of the county having a smaller population than the south,with a road system that largely follows traditional routes inland from the coast. High cliffs prevent easy access along much of the coastline although clifftop walkers are rewarded with unparalleled views on paths less well-trodden. But where the cliffs do give way to beaches, they are among the best in theWestcountry, and many of North Devonís coastal towns and villages remain largely untouched by the hand of modernisation.

In this book we are taken on an aerial journey along North Devonís coast starting where Devon meets Somerset on Exmoorís broad shoulders and heading south-west for around 50 miles or so (80km) to the Cornish border. On the way we look down on towering cliffs, wide sandy beaches, quiet river estuaries and hidden coves, all of which give this coastline its distinctive character.

Jason Hawkes is one of the countryís best-known photographers specialising in aerial photography. From his base near London he travels worldwide to produce images for books, advertising and design. Since 1991 he has provided photographs for major international companies including Nike, HSBC, Ford, Rolex,Toyota and BP. The images in this book and the sister publications in the series were specially commissioned by Halsgrove.
