On a recent trip to North Devon we decided on a walk to "Heddon's Mouth" on Exmoor. This lovely area is situated about 3 miles from Parracombe off the A39 road. When visiting just follow the signs for "Hunters Inn" a very famous lovely Moorland eating house/Pub.This beautiful very popular Pub does great food in a lovely atmosphere, with real open log fires on cooler days.
The day we visited was a little misty with the sun appearing occasionally. The area is a part of 12 miles of rugged Exmoor coastline, it also has starting here the National Trust managed walk to the renovated lime kiln at "Heddons Mouth". This picture shows the pub.
This is the National Trust information centre and shop(below), situated at the beginning of the walk.There are quite a few parking spaces available on grass but due to the wet weather most people as you can see parked on the road.

Below taken just after the start of this lovely easy walk, you follow this stream right down the valley to its meeting with the sea.
The lovely little stream meanders along through all sorts of trees, this pictures shows the height of the hills that surround the valley.
The picture below was taken from a clearing in the stream side walk, shows, just below the top a clear area which is actually a footpath, this precarious and steep path runs right around the hillside, but I'm not sure where to.
The valley (below) is quite steep but the path meanders along the stream staying fairly flat.
Below this is my favourite picture, showing the valley almost at its end as it widens on reaching the beach. The Gorse contrasts so well against the stream, grass and hillside.
Here you see Sue crossing the stream on stepping stones at the beach end, she managed it without getting her feet wet!!!.
Below one of the many (this one renovated) Lime kilns that dot this part of Exmoor, can you imagine a hundred years or more ago having to lug the Lime either the mile up the valley, or try to put it on board ships on this rough sea's coastline.
Below the two paths that lead away from the mouth back toward the Pub and Shop, the right path is slightly flatter and easier. When we went we decided to walk the slightly harder path on the way down, returning the easier route.
This view below shows the rocky/pebbly beach here, notice the stream runs down then disappears under the stone reappearing 15 or 20 feet lower down.
This Picture below shows "Heddon's Mouth's" shingle beach taken from the sea.
We picked the right day for this walk, it was a bright but not too warm day and was ideal walking weather.
Joke of the day

There is a new study about women and how they feel about their The results were pretty interesting:

30% of women think their ar.e is too fat............

10% of women think their ar.e is too skinny......

The remaining 60% say they don't care, they love him, he's a good man, and they wouldn't trade him for the world.

Lovely pictures. Enjoyed very much this Virtual Walk. Funnily enough I have done a Virtual Walk, but in the North, today.

These pictures remind me very much of those taken by Frances, who visits my blog, and who lives in Illfracombe, of a walk she did in March I think. The cove looks the same, but I suppose there are many coves round where you live!
