Appledore



When I visit Appledore I am besieged with photographic opportunity. This unique community which is recognised for its warren of narrow, cobbled streets and quaint, charismatic cottages is truly idyllic and is ensconced with maritime history and ship building which is still prominent today. There are endless crooks and crannies to explore and far reaching views over the river and estuary so I am spoilt for choice.

Every aspect of this picturesque fishing village enchants me and walking down the central quayside you are surrounded by a fusion of colour. It is festooned with brightly decorated, billowing flags, multi-coloured houses and boats of all shapes and sizes whilst splattered with a medley of quirky shops, pubs and art galleries that just add to its magic.

Appledore stands proudly on the River Torridge, where the Taw and Torridge merge and across the water is the village of Instow .Easily identified by its expanse of fine yellow sand and dunes and its pronounced white buildings which emanate a Mediterranean quality, especially when the sun is shining. A total contrast to its neighbour in every way but it then that is what makes North Devon so distinct and fascinating.

As always I am totally inspired by the early morning and evening light and the peace and serenity which surrounds it. The sun when it gently kisses the buildings and illuminates the resident boats . The multitude of colours that paint the sky and which generate an ever changing mood and capture for me that special moment in time.

For most people Appledore is sure to create that special memory and that moment in time will be different for everyone. It might be crabbing off the edge of the quay, eating fish and chips, walking with the breeze blowing through your hair or eating that Hockings ice cream. Whatever your memory you will always remember it fondly.
