Under Hooken, Devon


  • Located in Branscombe, Devon, South West England, England
  • Behind Hooken Beach, and beneath Hooken Cliffs, is the delightful Under Hooken. The result of a huge landslide, today the South West Coast Path runs through this extraordinary wooded landscape. White and orange cliffs rise vertical above you and the pale pebble beach runs in a strip along the coastline below you. The views east to The Pinnacles (Hooken Beach) and west beyond Branscombe Mouth and Branscombe Beach are exceptional
  • To visit, start from the car parking area at Branscombe Mouth. Follow the South West Coast Path into Under Hooken. We've positioned it on Google maps so zoom in on the 'satellite' setting to see its exact location. If you're wanting to explore the area, we'd also recommend studying the Ordnance Survey Explorer 116 'Lyme Regis & Bridport' map. This covers the area east of Branscombe Mouth. If you want to push west then also consult the Ordnance Survey Explorer 115 'Exmouth & Sidmouth' map
  • You can also walk to Under Hooken via Hooken Beach. Towards The Pinnacles (Hooken Beach), there's a path that climbs into the area of the landslide. Last, you can walk in from Beer on the South West Coast Path
  • 'Hooken Landslip. In 1790, about 15 million tons of Greensand and Chalk cliff slowly subsided in the middle of the night. Remarkably, farm hedges and a stile remained intact.' (Source: information board on site)
