Geocache Description:

Baggy Point is a headland in north Devon, England. It separates Croyde bay and Morte Bay which includes the beaches of Woolacombe and Putsborough. The sandstone rocks are popular with climbers. This is a very busy place with both locals and holiday makers, so stealth is very much required on this walk.

Baggy Point car park is at the end of Moor Lane. From the centre of the village, take the road to the left (Jones's Hill), signposted Putsborough, then first left into Moor Lane. From the car park, it is an easy 30 minute walk the mile to Baggy Point. Take the wide track that follows the ridge above the path along the coast. Look out for the black Hebridean Sheep that graze the cliffs. From the small ridge that extends to Baggy Point, good views can be had of the rock strata in the dramatic cliffs in the bay to the North. Fulmars nest here and you may see Cormorants or Shags drying their wings on the rocks below. On the high path, Stonechat are noticeable as they perch on the highest tips of Gorse bushes. In 1799, His Majesty's ship Weasel sank just off of Baggy Point with the loss of 105 men and one woman!

Woolacombe stands proudly on the spectacular, rugged and accessible Atlantic coast of North Devon with its rocky headlands, isolated coves and large sandy beaches. Picnickers are welcome in the grassy fields surrounding the car park. The path leads to the Point with amazing views on both sides and, on a clear day, as far as the Welsh coast, over to Lundy Island and Hartland Point. At this point you can also see the four beaches (my favourite place on the walk)Woolacombe, Putsborough, Croyed and Saunton beaches.

The South West Coast Path passes through the entire property, and there is an extensive network of paths covering the surrounding area. A slipway leads down to the beach where swimming and surfing are popular all year round. On Wednesdays in July and August, tractor rides give the young and old alike a different perspective on this long stretch of sandy beach.

This Cache has been placed with the very kind permission of the National Trust.
