In the remote and undeveloped parts of the North Devon Coast National Landscape many heritage features can still be seen, whether from ancient times or more recent historical events.
However, much of this heritage is at risk from environmental impacts, lack of official protection and lack of public awareness.
To help you discover our coastal heritage we have produced a number of free guides and walks leaflets which can be downloaded here;
- Heritage Hotspots in the Hartland Peninsula
- Devon D-Day Baggy Point Walk
- Northam Burrows’ – Hidden War Time History
- World War II Heritage Trail Around North Devon
