Path into Weston Plats
Path into Weston Plats
The coast path climbs on the right up the edge of the field shown in SY1688 : Coast path approaching Weston Mouth. The left turn is into an area of cliff called Weston Plats, owned by the National Trust. The information board explains that they were market gardens which thrived in the C19 and early C20 on the steep south-facing slopes, producing potatoes, fruit and flowers, but were finally abandoned in the 1960s. The Trust and the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty have since 2007 worked to restore the site, and a linhay has been rebuilt LinkExternal link .
