East Devon

East Devon contains a wealth of photographic opportunities. The Jurassic Coast begins at Exmouth and runs the length of the county and beyond. Highlights are Ottermouth at Budleigh Salterton, Ladram Bay sea stacks, Sidmouth and, a particular favourite of mine, the Hooken Undercliff at Branscombe.

Inland finds the the East Devon AONB, through which runs the East Devon Way long distance path. The Pebblebed heaths of the area include Woodbury, Aylesbeare, and Bicton commons, among others. The River Otter runs from the Blackdown Hills through Honiton, Ottery St Mary, to the coast at Budleigh Salterton, where high tide photo opportunities are too good to miss.

The hill forts of Blackbury Camp and Woodbury Castle are definitely worth a visit. The former is awash with bluebells in late spring, whereas the latter is fantastic for autumn colour.
