Today, I sadly leave Cornwall behind, but I’ll be back again and enter into Devon. I am already looking forward to the clotted cream teas.
I pass through places like Welcombe and eventually come to Hartland Quay with its’ Hotel and car park sandwiched between cliff and quayside,
Just inland from Hartland Quay is a place called Stoke or Stoke Barton. As I come from close by to the Potteries, I was looking for big clay ovens and Potters but I didn’t see any. I continued on my walk towards Hartland Point. I could see the Isle of Lundy, about 12 miles off the coast. At Hartland Point, I was expecting the lighthouse to be at the top of the cliff, not at the bottom. Hartland Point marks the extent of the Bristol Channel.
The rest of my walk towards Clovelly was uneventful. I was getting tired and was not impressed with having to double back on myself near Brownsham. As I walked I wondered at what point can you see the Welsh coastline with the naked eye.
