World War 2

World War II and the North Devon Coast 

What comes to mind when you think about World War II? The London Blitz? Churchill’s famous speeches? North Devon has many important World War II stories to tell – if you know where to look.

World War II is recognised as being one of the most significant periods in our modern history and both the people and landscape of North Devon have stories to tell. The legacy of World War II can be found all over our landscape in the remains of coastal defences, Radar stations, RAF bases and D-Day practice grounds.
