Carole W’s Broadsands to Berry Head Walk – Sunday 25th July

Once again part of our Torbay Coast path was chosen for a Club walk as Carole led a group from Broadsands Beach, over to Elbury Cove and then followed the coast path through Churston Woods, to Brixham.

From Brixham the group went to Berry Head, which is a National Nature Reserve. This stunning headland, with its iconic lighthouse and Napoleonic Fort, is surrounded by water on three sides and offers exceptional views across Torbay and beyond. It is Torbay’s most designated heritage site being a Special Area of Conservation, National Nature Reserve, Site of Special Scientific Interest and Scheduled Ancient Monument Рto name only four!

The return route to Broadsands followed part of the path once taken by Prince William of Orange on his march to London, when he left Breakwater Beach in 1688 for the 350 mile trip, passing through Churston en-route to Stoke Gabriel, for his first night on english soil.
