NATIONAL Trust warden Stuart Britton came up with a Jurassic challenge on Saturday, taking people on a day's hike along the stunning Jurassic coastline.
Through the eyes of East Devon's area warden, there was plenty to discover: the challenges of managing conservation and access along this piece of coast; modern day shipwrecks - although the Napoli has now gone - eroding cliffs and coastal grazing.
The walk explored steep wooded combes but walkers were rewarded with breathtaking views on this challenging but unforgettable day's walk.
Stuart said: "I know I'm biased, but this is a particularly beautiful section of the Jurassic coast.

"I was keen to share with people how we manage such a varied landscape and hopefully even surprise some of our regular visitors with some of the rich history and wildlife of the area they might not know about."
His is one of a series of walks organised by The Jurassic Coast Trust to offer people the opportunity to learn about the Jurassic Coast and meet the people that work to preserve and promote this world heritage site.
