If you walk westwards along the South West Coast Path, you will soon come to Angel’s Wings, a charming wooden shelter. Built in the 19th century, it gained its name from the elegant carvings of angels and angels’ wings supporting the roof.
It was built by Sir James Hamlyn Williams, a former owner of Clovelly. He placed it here so that he could look across Bideford Bay to where his daughter, Lady Chichester, lived at Youlston.
It’s well worth the gentle stroll. Once you’ve arrived you can rest on the seat amidst glorious woodland, enjoying spectacular views of the North Devon coast.
