Bucks Mills

The North Devon Coast AONB is defined by its Special Qualities. These are what make our AONB so special. There are 14 Special Qualities and for each of these we have chosen a place within the AONB where you can see what we mean.

 Special Quality 12 – Deep combes and cliffs cloaked in ancient woodland along the Bideford Bay Coast

In this aerial view we see the tiny village of Bucks Mills surrounded in a valley and coastline cloaked in ancient coastal woodland largely comprised of oak trees. These special woodlands are of international importance and are designated a part of the Tintagel to Bideford Bay Coast Special Area of Conservation.
