Slapton Line

Slapton Line is a road in South Devon, on the A379, connecting the villages of Torcross and Strete. This road is on a shingle ridge which separates the sea at Slapton Sands and a fresh water lagoon, Slapton Ley.

The Road is susceptible to storms, particularly when easterly winds are blowing. In January 2001 a storm damaged the road and shingle ridge which meant that the road had to be closed for 3 months. The vulnerability of the road has led Devon County Council to produce a contingency plan to deal with varying levels of damage to the road.

The area also has a very interesting history and is particularly associated with the 2nd World War.
