Below the rocks of the local coastline is a magical place held between two worlds; between land and sea. Nestled amongst the jagged rocks are the jewels of the ocean, uncovered for only a short time before being consumed once more by our precious ocean.

Come along on a discovery foraging walk to search for those treasures with local forager Adam Reeves. We’ll look at the tide’s characteristics, algae habitats, how to identify seaweed, its health and nutritional benefits, and sustainable foraging methods.

Adam Reeve, from the Rambler’s Pantry is an establish local forager that runs a variety of local foraging courses from hedgerow to coastline. With a vast array or knowledge and sustainable practices, Adam is a brilliant expert to start your foraging journey with.

Since the beach consists largely of channels and rough rocks, it is advisable to wear sturdy footwear, bring a stick for stability if needed, and to be in reasonable physical condition. Dress according to the local weather forecast.

Parking available at Down End car park : £6.00 for up to 3hrs. Alternatively buses are available from Braunton or car share from Caen Street car park outside the Braunton Countryside Centre can be arranged after booking.

Walks last approx. 2 and a half hours. Booking essential.
