Rocks & Rivers • A Bird’s Eye View of the West Country
- The South coasts of Devon and Cornwall are the first or the last view many mariner has of England. Whether running up-channel, bound east for London and Northern Europe, or beating ever westwards out into the stormy Atlantic, these shores have been a haven, a guide and occasionally, the source of ruin.
All we who have made the traverse or have sought shelter in the multitude of harbours between Portland Bill and the Isles of Scilly, have had to carry out our pilotage from the decks of a vessel of some sort. How often we have longed for a birds-eye view, to see what we cannot see. Patrick Roach, the maestro of the airbourne camera, has taken to the air and captured this excellent series of images which have been combined with narrative by Tom Cunliffe.
