Ladram Bay, Devon
Next we went to Ladram Bay to see the sea stacks there. The access road down to the bay was a typically narrow Devon road. The cliff tops above the bay are filled with a caravan site and we parked in the visitor’s car park there. We stood and watched a mobile home being taken off the site on a low-loader and were extremely grateful not to have met that on the way down to the bay!
The mobile home is to the left of the security hut being manoeuvred past the low branches of the trees. From the car park we walked down a the lane past buildings of the complex until we came to a cutting in the cliffs that lead directly to the beach.
On the left was a shop that sold ice-cream for dogs. Unusual in that dogs are banned on the beach all year!
In the bay itself the shingle beach was busy and the sea around the stacks had lots of swimmers.
More sea stacks
We climbed up steps above the cafe in the cutting and came to a grassed area next to the large indoor pool of the site. We could look over the bay and see the two stacks there.
The cliff was fenced off but we could see the other stacks east of where we were.
Thanks to the residents of site I was able to experiment with images through a glass left in the play area.
We then followed the Coastal Path away from the site until we came to a viewpoint to get a better a look at these other stacks below us.
