    Hi .
    I am heading down to North Devon, ( First time) from Gods own country Yorkshire. This next week, starting Saturday, for a spot of Snapping. Adding yet further to my collection of 19,000 images. That is including Slide and B&W negatives from the good old days. I shall be staying in the Lynton ,Minehead areas. Any suggestions of locations please. I would prefer there to be not much hiking involved, then I can cover ( BAG) more places of interest. I need to try out my recent purchase of 0.9 ND filters..... Many Thanks.

    The North Devon coast between Ilfracombe and Minehead is particularly beautiful. Photogenic spots include the Valley of Rocks at Lynton, Porlock Weir, Lee Bay (just beyond the Valley of Rocks), and Heddons Mouth, about 6 miles east of Combe Martin. Though you don't want too much hiking, there is a good wide path from Heddons Mouth, east towards Lee Bay, which is halfway up the hogsback cliffs, with spectacular views.

    There is also Woolacombe Bay, 2 miles of sandy beach, with Morte Point just to the north. If you would like a nice walk, try the coast path from Combe Martin eastwards, over Little Hangman and Great Hangman - spectacular.

    Hope I have given you some ideas.
