  A picturesque seaside village with thatched cottages and an ancient harbour, Axmouth nestles in the Axe Valley and was once a thriving port whose inhabitants included bands of smugglers.
Home to the Sea Discovery Centre, its 12th century church contains rare 15th century depictions of Christ and St. Peter.



Nearby, a local nature reserve has been created around a vast landslip that saw eight million tons of cliff top rock disappear into the sea on Christmas Day 1839.



The church at nearby Musbury contains a memorial to the Drake family.
