Devon Coast to Coast Update

Finally got around to measuring the distance of the Coast to Coast. Some resources say 116 miles whilst other ones say 103! My calculation makes it around 106 miles, and for now, that's the distance I'll stick to!

Apologies to anyone who has sponsored me on the pretence I was doing 116 miles, but I'm sure you'll let me off!

My plan is taking shape now. I've decided on the stages, where I'll have to search out suitable accommodation. It's looking like this (I've also added the estimated ascent for each day according to my mapping software);
  • Day 1 - Wembury to Ivybridge - 14 miles (623m ascent)
  • Day 2 - Ivybridge to Holne - 13.5 miles (632m ascent)
  • Day 3 - Holne to Chagford - 17.5 miles (901m ascent)
  • Day 4 - Chagford to Morchard Bishop - 19 miles (949m ascent)
  • Day 5 - Morchard Bishop to Knowstone - 14.5 miles (548m ascent)
  • Day 6 - Knowstone to Withypool - 12 miles (743m ascent)
  • Day 7 - Withypool to Lynmouth - 16 miles (912m ascent)
