Roger Smith

On this interesting walk from Scabbacombe Head, we should see Eryngium campestre (Field Eryngo), Festuca longifolia (Blue Fescue), Melittis melissophyllum (Bastard Balm), Hypochaeris glabra (Smooth Cat’s-ear) and much more as we follow the path down to Scabbacombe Sands then south on the cliff path to Ivy Cove. The route continues as a circular walk inland to the car park near Coleton Fishacre, where it might be possible to leave one or two cars. The route back to the start is along quiet lanes. Botanists of all standards, including beginners, welcome.  Joint with Devonshire Association.
