A Boot Up Devon's Jurassic Coast
A Boot Up Devon's Jurassic Coast
  • Description

Iron-staining has given us the warm pinks and reds of Devon’s sandstone cliffs.These were laid down 240 million years ago in warm lagoons when Britain’s tectonic plate, floating on the Earth’s mantle, was 15 degrees further south at the same latitude as the modern Sahara.This continental drift – causing Africa to collide into Europe – led to the uplifting that produced the remarkable landform geology of the East Devon and Dorset coast. From Orcombe Point to Old Harry Rocks it was designated as aWorld Heritage Site by Unesco in 2001.You can time travel, literally, as the rocks get younger from west to east to span 185 million years in 95 miles.

Behind the coast on the Devon side of the border, the landscape rises and falls into a series of deep-cut valleys between high plateaus of wild or wooded pebbled-heaths. Between the hills run the rivers that provide the root elements for many place names, notably the Exe,Otter, Sid and Axe.

The ten circular walks, ranging from 4 to 11 miles, suit the needs of families, groups of friends or individuals looking for a gentle stroll or a longer walk, and reflect the many varied facets of the area – its people, its history, and its working landscape and will help first time visitors to experience some of the great scenery the area has to offer. Many of the walks feature a pub along the route.
