This historic coastal town dates back to the days of the
Anglo-Saxons and is thought to have been where a marauding Viking named Hubba launched an ill-fated attack on Devon.
He was apparently slain at 'Bloody Corner' at a place marked by ‘Hubba’s Rock’.
Northam Burrows is part of a vast network of sand dunes known as a Biosphere Reserve designated by UNESCO.
The burrows contain hundreds of plant species.
