The NCI Visitor Centre was funded by a substantial Lottery grant. It’s open 365 days a year and includes working radar, CCTV, interactive systems that allow visitors to see what is happening along the coast and in the bay and provides a history of Torbay in pictures.
- NCI Torbay has been open since May 2009.
Daddyhole Plain is a limestone plateau some 75 metres above the sea. Daddy is an old Devon name for the Devil, and according to local legend, the Devil lived in a cave at the foot of the cliff, formed when a large chunk of limestone fell into the sea, creating ‘Daddyhole’.
Daddyhole used to be a quarry, which has now been eroded somewhat by the sea. There are interesting ledges on the beach below that contain fossilised corals.
- This site is an SSSI, so no hammering on the bedrock or cliffs is allowed.
- The easiest way to get here is by car
