About this book

Wild Looe focuses on the glorious diversity of a small area on the edge of the ocean: the coastal town of Looe, west to Polperro, east to Seaton, and inland to Shallowpool and Sandplace, including the nature reserve of Looe Island. It looks at the rocky shore; the tidal estuary of the West and East Looe rivers; the ancient, semi-natural woodlands of the river valleys – especially Kilminorth Woods, Trenant Woods and Seaton Valley – and the fields and hedgerows of the coast path. It highlights the natural history of these environments, their protection and conservation.
