AXMOUTH is a village situated at the entrance of a Combe, with a clear brook flowing down its street.
There are many reasons for visiting this tranquil, picturesque village. A wander around its fascinating streets will reveal 18th and 19th Century farmhouses, a Norman church, quaint cottages and two fine houses dating from the 15th and 17th centuries.
Axmouth is steeped in history, having once been a thriving south-coast port that accounted for one sixth of Devon's trade during the 16th century.
Although trading ceased long ago Axmouth harbour now offers lots to enjoy, and at high tide you can watch people enjoying various water sports.
The bridge over the river was one of the first concrete bridges to be built in England and the only one still in existence. In 1976 the bridge was designated an 'ancient monument' the youngest ancient monument in the country.
At the top of what is probably East Devon's steepest tarmac lane you will find the South West Coastal Path, which leads through the Landslip or Undercliff.
Axmouth offers walks, wildlife, history and plenty of attractions, in fact something for everyone.
