Cirencester Ramblers

April 15th Ilfracombe short walk

On Sunday 15th April 23 members and guests went on a 5½ mile walk from the NT car park at Baggy Point.   In addition, three members did a shorter 2½ mile version of the walk, going direct to Baggy Point from the National Trust Car Park. 

Those on the full walk made their way along the beach and through the sand dunes to Croyde village before taking a track to the hamlet of Putsborough.  We continued on lanes until reaching the South West Coast Path at Putsborough Sands.  After a brief coffee stop overlooking the bay that stretches all the way up to Woolacombe, we continued on the SWCP out to Baggy Point.

After another brief pause for photos of Steve climbing the "totem pole" and to admire the beautiful coastline before we made our way back to the NT car park and lunch in the local café.
