The walk starts with a brisk climb up the other side of the Heddon Valley. It was drizzling and very windy and the route passes round Peter Rock. Peter Rock overhangs the cliff and is exposed to the wind at the mouth of the valley and slippery rock, but it was ok. Following on from that, the path goes to the top of Great Hangman, which is the highest point on the entire South West Coast Path at 318m. Then you travel down past Little Hangman and a number of small villages (Combe Martin, Berrynarbor, Watermouth, Widmouth, Hele) before reaching Ilfracombe. One section involves walking along the footpath at the side of the main road for a mile or two. A quick drink in a pub in Ilfracombe, then bus to Barnstaple.
