Bucks Mills village, Devon

Bucks Mills is a small village in the EX39 postcode district of Torridge on the North coast of Devon. Within the civil parish of Woolfardisworthy, it is also part of the North Devon Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). It lies on the South West Coast Path roughly halfway between Hartland Point in the west and Westward Ho! in the east. The nearest town is Bideford, about eight miles away to the northeast. The village stream that now tumbles onto the beach used to power at least one mill. The beach at Bucks Mills consists of large pebbles and ridges of hard sandstone with a little dark sand at low water. The beach formerly had a small quay used to unload a mixture of anthracite and limestone which was burnt in kilns to produce fertiliser. The ruins of two lime kilns can still be seen on either side of the beach access but sadly there is no sign of the quay.

The small village church lies sandwiched between a holiday park and the A39 Atlantic Highway and dates from 1862. It is dedicated to St. Anne.
