Saturday 15 May. It was Amanda & Josephine’s last day with me so we opted for a more leisurely sightseeing walk starting from just outside Ilfracombe. We walked down to the harbour for coffee and to view the Damien Hirst statue “Verity”.
Leaving the harbour behind us we had a steep climb to the top of Hillsborough, an iron age fort, from where we had great views back to Ilfracombe and ahead to Hele Bay where we stopped for lunch.
Whilst the walk was only 3.4 miles, we still managed a total ascent of just over 1,100ft.
