As we heave a sigh with a heavy heart at the passing of our dear friend summer, worry not, autumn is starting to arrive and with it comes all sorts of seasonal treats.

So to celebrate the change in season here’s our guide to a few choice coastal walks in the south west, if you think we’ve missed a beauty leave a comment below and tell us about your suggestion.

Our lovely St Ives store manager, Amy Iggulden will be volunteering on the day and shaking donation buckets on the pier. Seasalt will also be donating raffle prizes to help raise funds directly for the launch and recovery vehicle the lifeboat team need to continue doing the great work they already do.

It all promises to be a great day so why not pop down?

Sperry

Sperry Top-Sider deck shoes have been a favourite since 1935 when Paul Sperry, inspired by the pattern of cracks in his dog Prince’s paws and his ability to run nimbly over the ice and snow, used a pen knife to cut into the rubber outer sole of a trainer.
