The South Devon coast includes Dartmouth, Salcombe, Torquay, Paignton and Exmouth, as well as many other popular coastal locations. Exmouth marks the end of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage site. Popular with holidaymakers, Torquay and Paignton have been visited by holidaymakers since the 1800s. Designated as an Area of Outstanding Beauty, the South Devon coast features sandy beaches and hidden coves, as well as many popular Victorian seaside towns. Gary Holpin takes the reader on a journey along the entire length of the South Devon coast. This beautifully illustrated and informative book allows the reader to submerge themselves, whether on foot, bicycle, in a car or simply from the comfort of their own armchair, in the wealth of fascinating history and folklore as well as the outstanding beauty that lies along the banks of the coastline.
Gary Holpin moved to Devon in 2003 and immediately fell in love with the area. He taught himself photography in order to do justice to the stunning south west scenery, and shares his love for the region in his photography and his books.
