Sidmouth Esplanade and rock islands from Salcombe Hill
The Esplanade is the straight road behind the shingle beach in the centre of the photo. In the sea on the left are two rock islands installed in the 1990s to protect the beach after shingle was washed away by a storm. The path in the foreground is part of the England Coast Path, here on National Trust land.
South West Coast Path
The South West Coast Path National Trail - 630 miles of superb coastal walking. From Minehead on the edge of the Exmoor National Park to the shores of Poole Harbour in Dorset. It is the longest of all Britain's National Trails.

National Trust
A National Trust is an organization dedicated to preserving the cultural or environmental treasures of a particular geographic region. They generally operate as private non-profit organizations, although some receive considerable support from their national government. The first such organization was the National Trust for Places of Historic Interest or Natural Beauty, which is the National Trust of England, Wales and Northern Ireland, formed in 1895 and operating as a charitable organisation.
