County Gate is boundary between Somerset & Devon

Caption - County Gate is the boundary between Somerset and Devon on the A39 between Porlock and Lynmouth. Unseen by many motorists who pass this way is the excellent view of the valley containing the East Lyn River. Like much of Exmoor footpaths are well signed - a credit to those who manage the rights of way.

Walking in the Exmoor National Park, which lies in West Somerset and North Devon, includes a dramatic section of coast. Wild moorland dominates the high ground with Dunkery Beacon the highest point within the National Park. Wooded valleys or combes cut deep into this upland and provide another typical feature of the landscape. The coast includes some of the highest cliffs in the UK with easy access provided by the South West Coast National Trail. More Information
