  • Verity, designed by Damian Hurst, sited at Ilracombe Harbour, the start of the trail
  • Watch out for this . It's on the route. You go through a churchyard which is grand, just you have steps. However there is a small ramp on the left, that helps (insert smiley)
  • The first part of the cycleway in Ilfracombe
  • The Millenium Signpost, close to the now dismantled Ilfracombe station
  • The first part of the route is along a dedicated cyclepath. Here you pass under Lee Bridge
  • The end of the cyclepath is marked by a Sustrans Millenium marker. At 195metres it's been a bit of a climb from Ilfracombe
  • You are rewarded with lovely views as you climb higher after the cyclepath on roads now. Here the sheep overlook Georgeham
  • A typical West Coutry view these days. Big bale silage and distant wind turbines
  • Following a steep descent, you'll come to Braunton where infrastructure is in place to take you right to the centre of town
  • Braunton has a few attractions, who would have guessed that there is a museum dedicated to surfing
  • The start of the Tarka Trail just outside Braunton
  • There are several cafe's on this stretch, The waterside has views over the Taw Estuary
  • Cycling the Tarka Trail along the edge of the pretty Taw Estuary towards Barnstaple
  • An abandoned boat has seen better days, but makes a good scenic backdrop
  • Approaching Barnstaple
  • Barnstaple from the trail. The route bypasses the centre preferring to go over the Taw Estuary Bridge. However take the time to visit the town, there is a historic quay and it's an attractive place
