“Every year many hundreds of tourists and hikers traverse the SWCP stretch between Shaldon and Maidencombe. At various points along the winding, extraordinarily scenic path, tantalising glimpses of deserted coves can be seen.
It is assumed that the only access to these secluded coves is via the sea by pleasure craft, kayak or canoe…”

Captain Bill’s Secret Maidencombe

A joint collaboration between Neal Taylor and Jim Campbell.
