Produced in association with the Open University’s BLAST! Project, Cyclops joined Phil Bradfield, an Associate Lecturer with the OU, and Emily Unell of the BLAST! Project team, to record their experiences and some fascinating facts about a six mile walk along the Devon coast at Slapton Sands.
Items of interest include the unique ecology of the area, a wide and varied history including Operation Tiger / Exercise Tiger (the US Army’s rehearsal for the D-Day landings) and a village getting swept into the sea, and noting how the coastal villages, and their inhabitants have been changing recently!

It is hoped that this is the first in a series of walking podcasts that will include other areas of interests across the UK.
