Teignmouth → Starcross


Distance: 7.9 miles
Ascent: unknown
Duration: 3 hours 11 minutes

« Shaldon | Exmouth »

After the Shaldon walk we continued on to Starcross. It's a section of the South-West Coast Path which Em hadn't yet completed. We've decided every now and then to rewalk those parts which I've finished but she hasn't.

I know this walk well and it never fails to impress: the railway and the footpath sandwiched between bright red cliffs and thundering sea. Every now and then a wave crashes against the sea wall and spills over the path. For a short distance the railway passes through five tunnels while the path climbs up and over the cliffs before reuniting.

Originally walked on 21 February 2001.
