Heddon’s Mouth is a rocky cove on the coast of North Devon, England, about a mile down the River Heddon from the Hunter’s Inn. It is preserved for the nation by the National Trust.
In previous times it was a popular venue for smugglers, but is now a popular destination for ramblers. In 1885 a Mr E.D. Weedon was awarded the Royal Humane Society’s Bronze Medal for saving the life of Mr T. Groves at the locality. In 1923 a pleasure steamer that had just left Ilfracombe broke its rudder and began to drift out to sea, but was towed to the cove and its 400 passengers safely decanted.
