East Devon

East Devon contains a wealth of photographic opportunities. While not as obvious a place to visit as, say, Dartmoor, there are plenty of places to explore in this beautiful area of the county.

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, and Sidmouth. A particular favourite stretch of this coast for me is the Hooken Undercliff at Branscombe.

Inland finds an area of outstanding natural beauty, through which runs the East Devon Way long distance path. The Pebblebed heaths of the area include Woodbury, Aylesbeare, and Bicton commons. 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.
