Torquay., United Kingdom

Artist's Description

Torcross is a tiny seaside village in South Devon, situated at the Southern end of a three mile long causeway that separates the sea from a freshwater bird and wildlife sanctuary. The popular beach that runs the length of the causeway is known as Slapton Sands.
All looks peaceful and calm as seen in this image looking along the causeway from the cliffs at the end of Torcross village but during Winter storms, waves often break on the roofline of the houses and many fear it is only a matter of time before they are ruined, just like the neighbouring village of Hallsands that was ruined in the early twentieth century.
The birdlife in the freshwater sanctuary, (Seen to the left of the houses) is amazing in it’s number of species and visitors can get a fine view of them from the hides on the water’s edge.
