Appledore is a quaint fishing village in North Devon, situated where the Rivers Taw and Torridge meet.  Sailing is very popular and the view at low tide across a vast spread of sandbanks to the open sea, is particularly beautiful.

It has been a famous boat-building centre for many years and it is still carried on from a large dry dock.  The narrow streets of pastel coloured, mainly Georgian cottages, are very pretty and slope straight down to Appledore Quay.

About The Photographer

Alison Avery

I hope that you enjoy browsing the photographs on my website. They demonstrate the rich variety of scenery we have in Britain within a relatively short distance. It has been a great pleasure for me to visit different parts of the country to capture the beauty of our countryside, coast and villages. For as long as I can remember, I have loved taking photographs and drawing and painting pictures of British scenes. I am continually adding more photographs to the website.
