We headed to Salcombe and instead of taking the longer way round we took the back road along part of the Avon estuary. We didn't know it until we got there but for 3/4 mile this road is tidal - how cool is that! Luckily we got there at low tide so it was passable albeit very narrow sandwiched between the mud and water on one side and a rock cliff on the other. The sign at the start of the road warns that it's only passable at certain times - we would have got a pic but there was a vehicle following us.
We wended our way on up the estuary then cut across country to the Kingsbridge Estuary on which Salcombe nestles and tumbles down the steep valley sides to the water below.
