A Walk In North Devon From Mortehoe
While away in North Devon we did quite a few walks. This one was from the village of Morthoe via Bull Point, Rockham Beach and Morte Point and back to the village again.
The weather wasn't as nice and sunny as we had hoped but it was dry so we put on our walking shoes and headed across country first to the lighthouse. I'd only seen it previously marked on a map so was a bit disappointed when we finally reached the building - not quite as I had imagined.
But the scenery was great, overlooking Bull Point, and we were quite high up.
We walked on along the coastal path in a westward direction, mostly with just a few sheep to keep us company.
These two sheep I discovered under a gorse bush, a mother and lamb I presume.
It was hazy but the open cliffs and hills appeared to go on forever with ...
... many wild flowers clinging to the cliffs.
The footpath stretched on for miles with lots of ups and downs.
You can still see the path in the distance continuing to the top left of the photo below.
After much puffing and panting we finally made it to Morte Point ...
... and this in turn led us back to Morthoe village ...
and the inevitable church.
