AONBs or Areas Of Natural Beauty Are Areas Designated by Natural England For Conservation Due To Their Significant Landscape Value. This Post Is Specifically About East Devon AONB.
East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) stretches from the 18 miles (29km) 0f coastline on its southern border north to the Blsckdown hills AONB and east to the Dorset AONB. It covers an area of 100 square miles (260 sq km) and 29 parishes. It borders the towns of Sidmouth, Exmouth and Seaton (including the Axe estuary and Seaton wetlands) but includes Budleigh Salterton and Lower Otter Project Area.
As can be seen from the first map it is possible to travel from the outskirts of Exmouth close to Salisbury without leaving an AONB.
There is much more info on the East Devon AONB on their website which can be accessed via the link. https://www.eastdevonaonb.org.uk
SVBG is a not for profit organisation dependant on volunteers, grants and donations. Without funding we cannot operate and many of our biodiversity projects will cease.
Even the smallest donation can make a difference to wildlife such as the kingfisher on our logo.
